This recipe was in a recent issue of Wisconsin Outdoor News. I haven’t tired it yet, but when I get some rotten fruit, I will.
12 oz. beer
1 lb. brown sugar
1/2 cup molasses
Some rotten fruit (bananas, plums, pears, peaches, grapes)
Blend together until thick enough to spread. Let ferment, uncovered on the counter, overnight. Spread on a plate or rocks and watch for butterfly visitors. Refrigerate any remaining mix.
Here’s an unusual capture by the trail cam of a pretty monarch butterfly passing by. Ignore the temperature on the picture. Obviously the sun was beating right down on the camera.
