Tonight I bottled a whole load of juicy sweet plums in alcohol for steeping. I plan on making plum liqueur, thanks to the recipe I found (via google) here. The plums will steep in the alcohol for three to six months, then when they are ready, I will strain the liquid out and add a sugar syrup to it to make the liqueur.
Three to six months is a long time to wait.
Tomorrow, Nath will be utilising his Christmas still for the first time to make another batch of spirits. I intend on making some cherry liqueur and some peach schnapps before all of these beautiful summer fruits disappear.
