Plums Marinated in Red Wine

    25 min

    The plum quantity is estimated, how much can fit depends on the size of the fruit and the size of your jars. This is lovely to make when plums are in season, and then have round during Christmas. You can get creative, using the plums to serve with ice cream, or even using the liquid to make festive cocktails.

    Fabulous. It tastes great now & will be even better when matured. We used mulled wine, reduced the sugar & took the stones out. The leftover liquid we reduced & ended up with a jar of plum & wine jam.  -  15 Aug 2015
