    Chef Kate's Note:

    These plums can be eaten right out of the jar, or used to make all sorts of wonderful desserts. The syrup is heaven, a gorgeous red-purple and is lovely to drink as a syrup or to mix with something for a cocktail--it is particularly delicious with champagne.

      Beautiful and delicious!!! The color of this is amazing. They were perfect on the second day in the refrigerator. I used fresh plums from our neighbor's tree. This is great added to drinks! (July 18) Update: This has aged just lovely. Over one month later it is at its prime. Sweet and tasty. We sipped these out of cordial glasses and they were divine.
