My cup runneth over with Myers's rum. What to do with all of it? I have a good couple of litres of it, and i'm already dedicating some of it to making vanilla extract. The catch: I don't drink, and I won't be throwing any parties with giant bowls of dark rum punch. Any non-beverage ideas to use it up?

Fruitcake or rum balls, for Christmas gifts? Rum cake in general is a good thing.

Oh, and a friend makes the most amazing grilled shrimp, brushed with a mixture of rum and brown sugar (about equal parts, should be thick but liquid). And then a good squeeze of lime on top when they come off the heat.

Stuff fresh figs with walnut halves and a few anise seeds, put in pint mason jars, cover with rum, put away for a month or two, and then eat, spooned over plain Greek yogurt, vanilla ice cream or a slice of lemony pound cake. Divine. Well worth the wait. ;o) P.S. If you can't get fresh figs, soak dried ones in rum and proceed as stated above.

Rum banana bread, rum raisin ice cream, also would be lovely in deglazing a pan when pan frying pork chops or chicken. Infuse a few Mason jars full of the rum with a vanilla bean and let sit till the holidays and add to cheesecakes. Rum in pumpkin bread and/or pumpkin pie is great too!

Rum syrup (i'll send you the recipe via the messaging system, as what I have is protected by copyright). It's heavenly stirred into steaming whole milk, with a touch of nutmeg, in winter for a nightcap. Also, stuff a mason jar with yellow and/or flame or ruby raisins and fill the jar with rum, to plump them up for use in puddings, crisps, very-grown-up-holiday-brunch-French-toast and cold-weather desserts. ;o)

I love using rum in the roasting of pineapple.

I make a syrup out of water, sugar, star anise, cinnamon and an aggressive splash of rum. Reduce it a little bit, pour it over pineapple in a baking pan, cover and roast. The pineapple comes out extremely flavorful.

Jon Palmer, that syrup sounds like it would be amazing on a lot of things! Really like the "aggressive splash of rum" part. ;o)
