“Another Liqueur I have been wanting to try. Every year I try to remember to make this with my excess of plums and every year I still forget! It takes up to 2 months before this can be consumed. If using corks paraffin was can be used for the seal, cool and dry filled bottle and dip the neck of the bottle into melted paraffin wax to cover the cork about 1.2 inch down the neck of the bottle.”
3-4 cups

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prick the plums very well and put in a jar or bottle with the sugar. Cover tightly and leave to stand for 2-3 days or until the juice runs freely.
  2. Pour in the gin and cover tightly. Leave in a warm place for about 2 months.
  3. Strain, squeezing out as much juice as possible, and pour into sterilized bottles and cork tightly.
