I have always loved these plums…
Since there were hundreds of pounds of them hanging from the trees at my parents’ farm, I helped myself to a big box of them.
And as usual, the first plums made their way into an infusion for a lovely plum liqueur.
2 c. fresh sliced plums (about 8 small to medium plums)
2 c. vodka
2 TB sugar
Place all ingredients in a quart jar, seal and allow to infuse for 4-6 weeks. Strain the plums out of the liquid, and filter if desired. I have not yet filtered mine, but the liqueur seems quite clear.
This liqueur is very light and delicate. If you can still get fresh plums in your area, be sure to try this!
