Anyone have recipes using wild plums?

9 posts in this topic

Jelly would be good; wine is a little more complicated than I want to get into. Any other ideas?

I have a friend that makes a plum bob drink

I believe he juices the plumbs adds sugar and windsor? I think any way IT is really tasty after the process. I do not think it is that hard either try googling it

A buddy and I were a little bored the other day and got creative.

I now have a 5 gallon bucket of plum wine fermenting in the kitchen. Never tried making it before, hopefully it will be drinkable!!!

I also have 5 gallons of wild grape wine fermenting.

It's not that hard to do. Clean buckets, 2 gallons of ripe fruit, 10 lbs of sugar, a packet of WINE yeast, homemade air lock, and 30-45 days of time.

I can post the process if you are interested. No guarantees on the outcome though, have about a month to go for preliminary results smile

We also juiced some plums, added a ton of sugar along with some everclear. Not bad! But the color of the drink couldn't be gayer!!

DonBo, sounds like I'll have to try making some jam too!

Plum Bump Fill quart jar with plums that have been scored with a knife. Depending how sweet they are Add 1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar. Then fill jar up with vodka. Let sit for three months turning every once in a while. Pour over ice and add a little seven up and enjoy. This canbe done with most friuts. Have made apple, plum,grape,rhubarb. Tried peaches nasty.

P.S. DO NOT EAT THE FRUIT!!

It is good but it will sneak up and get ya if you have to much one year during We Fest there was 6 of us and we opened 8 quarts which is equel to about a gallon of straight booze. It was interesting to say the least.

I never got back out in time to grab some more plums frown

The wild grape wine I made turned out awesome!! I think I could sit down and drink a whole bottle of that stuff!

The plum wine I made is a little too tart and acidic to drink much more than a sip.......I'll have try something new next year with the plums.

    •   Yes, he lives in Russia. Good job, but no one disputed that fact.     Or, from your own article:         1. That's not even the point I was trying to make with that quote. 2. You do realize that Gary Johnson is no longer Governor of New Mexico, right? 3. The last political office he ran for was as a Libertarian.     I OWE you nothing but if we ever found ourselves in the same drinking establishment, I would be happy to buy a couple rounds.   Now. Tell me more about these butt-hurt Texans? Or are you just being a giant hypocrite?     
    • sorry for late reply !! hope your trip went well. We have done great this year amazing for numbers and always a few big ones.
    •     As NYT reports, the president of the 'Yes California' movement lives in Russia.     https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/21/us/yes-california-calexit-marinelli-russia.html?src=twr&smid=tw-nytimes&smtyp=cur&_r=1   RUSSIA !!! Must be buddies with trump and putin .. (OH, MY...)   And gary Johnson (liberatarian hero) is in fact a republican.   WOOOOOO!!!!!   That's two beers you owe me.
    •   You could have just looked at him for starters.     Nothing to see here, probably just some "Christians" making fun of autistic folks.
    •  
      I swear some of you must be emotionally attached to these laws because there is no logic in your thinking, the same kind of thinking that has wasted a trillion dollars and has yet to solve a single issue. The lottery has better results than the war on drugs, at least a few winners have emerged over the years.
    •   In our local paper they highlighted a local that is an author and wrote a book on what he did for his weight loss...he would eat good for 6 days of the week and then have 1 splurge day where he could eat what he wanted and doing this reset his metabolism and he lost a lot of weight.
    •   I was thinking the same I rarely use my own wheeler but when I do I like my auger on the wheeler. I thought about buying a mount but can't stand spending that much cash on one. I was thinking of making one but that's a project for the summer months. Sorry I can't help.
    •   If that's what you want to do go for it. You're the one who will pay the consequences.   Should the guy in this video chug a bottle of Jack? Probably not but it's legal.    
    •   Maybe phone service and internet will be down. Yes! Living off grid. I like it. Can we even call it "winter" anymore? I mean seriously where's the days when getting a foot plus of snow wasent uncommon. A lot of people like these warm snowless winters. I hate it! Thanks globle warming!
