This is an easy and delicious drink to make and enjoy!  It will only last a short time, approximately 2 months, a seasonal pleasure!  This is a really good way of using up those plums that are a little blemished.  This recipe makes approximately 1.1ltr (2 pints or 5 cups).  If you want a little less just halve or quarter the recipe.

350g (12oz/1 1/2 cups ) Granulated Sugar

600ml (1 pint/2 1/2 cups) Water

15g (1/2oz) Citric Acid


Put Plums into a pan with the sugar and water

Bring to the boil and then simmer for approximately 20 minutes or until soft and pulpy

Puree in a blender and then strain through a sieve into a glass container and putting any pulp into a bowl - this can be make into Fruit Strips

Stir citric acid into you liquid and then bottle into sterilised glass bottles.  

This can be used immediately.  Dilute to taste.
