On our way back from our first major blackberry picking trip of the year, we stumbled across a row of wild cherry plum trees. In less than 15 minutes we had managed to half fill a large carrier bag with perfect plums. The fruits of our labour were quickly converted into 14 jars of jam! The dilemma now is where to store them!
If you are lucky enough to come across these trees you could also try the following recipe:
Fill a jar or bottle with as many cherry plums as will fit.
Add 2 tablespoons of sugar and top up with brandy
Try and be patient for 3-4 months and you will have some delicious cherry brandy. If made now it will be ready in time for Christmas....
Look out for plums like the ones above
