[Printer-friendly version of recipe]

3 lbs plums
1 cup sugar - be sure to use cane sugar not beet sugar
7 tablespoons water
About 1 cup rum

Wash the plums and cut them half, removing the pits.

Heat the sugar and the water in a medium-sized saucepan until the sugar melts. Add the plums and simmer for 5 minutes.

Pack the plums into jars with tongs, until the reach the bottom of the threads of the jar. Pour in syrup about half-way up the jar. Fill the jar with rum to within 1/4 inch of the top.

Run a spatula or butter knife along the side of the jars to release any air, add more syrup if necessary.

After filling jars, return to a boiling water bath for 5 minutes. Take out and allow to cool. Jars should seal within the hour.

The plums should sit on the shelf for several months to develop their flavor.

Yield: about 4 pint jars
