Well, I've had this sitting since October and we finally had some tonight while getting the Christmas decorations out of the basement.....excellent! I made as Rita directed and plan to give some small bottles away as gifts and keep the rest for myself. Lots of nice flavors in this from the vanilla sugar, cardamom, cinnamon, orange and ginger. This is a keeper and will become a yearly tradition for us! Thanks Rita!

Made this in August when the plum tree was full. Opened the first jar in December and it tastes wonderful. Great flavors for winter. Like mulled wine without all the work. Will definitely make more next year. This won't last long around here.

Could you use honey for this? Half as much of course.
