Bergy, I am loving the recipes you are sharing. This has colour, sex appeal, ( in the jar lol!) warmth and a fab palate.. I know I have to leave these for two months however, I am betting will give in and try one jar earlier. Have used the fortune plums , smaller with a yellow flesh and deep red/purple skins. I will make sure to update when the 2 months have passed and making another batch today anyway..have a feeling this is one of those recipes I'll hand down to the kids.. Allie :) UPDATED.. I left these for quite a few months before using.. the family loves it with the BBQ.. will be making this again .
