    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    quarts

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Rinse the plums (do not scrub away the white bloom) and cut out the pits.
    2. 2
      Place in a large crock or one or more large jars.
    3. 3
      Pour in as much of the sugar as the container can hold.
    4. 4
      Cover loosely (I believe the traditional cover is several layers of cheesecloth but I've done fine with a regular lid that is left unscrewed) and let it ferment at room temperature for six weeks.
    5. 5
      As the mixture liquefies keep adding sugar until it is used up.
    6. 6
      Strain the liquid (reserving the pulp) and mix it with the whiskey and bottle it up.
    7. 7
      My mother always uses a cheap whiskey and allowed the mixture to age in the bottle for many months.
    8. 8
      However, using a good whiskey makes it drinkable right away--especially important for the first batch.
    9. 9
      It keeps indefinitely--if you make enough.
