Ok this requires a metric, you know what, load of patience but don't be put off as you will be rewarded with an elixir unlike anything else you have ever tasted before.
You will get a decent, if immature, tasting result after 3 months stored in your deepest, darkest cavernous area of your abode but for best results just let it be for at least a year and preferably longer.
I also make mine with a combination of shochu and other drinks such as calvados, brandy and rum which plays to an extremely warm welcome.
1Dissolve sugar in alcohol.
2Put cleaned plums into sterilised storing vessel and pour in the alcohol/sugar mix.
3Put a label on it and forget about it for a couple of years!
Im lucky to have a good neighbour with a couple of trees full of these beauties but they are everywhere to be found in june.
