Elving part deux


Four weeks ago I bottled 2 pounds of frozen plums (from the boys Great Grandfathers plum tree) into a large kilner jar. 

Added 200g of Caster Sugar and topped it up with good quality Brandy.

Every few days I gave the jar a shake to dissolve the sugar and macerate the plums.

Today (4 weeks later), I poured the plum brandy into little glass bottles as gifts for family this Christmas.



Hurry up Father Christmas!

I can't maintain a level of normality in the house anymore!
