Recipe for Wild Plum Cordial


1 fruit to fill each jar
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1-inch piece of vanilla pod
1 tablespoon brandy
1 vodka to cover


Fill the jar with fruit to just below the neck. Add the sugar and vanilla pod. Pour in the brandy and fill with vodka to cover the fruit completely. Seal firmly and give the jar a shake to disperse the sugar. Leave in a warm place for a few days, turning the jar every day until the sugar is dissolved. Then keep in a cool, dark place for at least a month until ready to use.

The authors say that tiny wild red and yellow plums may be gathered in hedgerows in August (my note: These authors are from England, I'm not sure the same applies for the States). Large domestic cherries can be substituted to make a Cherry Cordial if plums cannot be found. They suggest serving the fruit and spirits as a compote or with creme-fraiche or ice cream and the cordial can be sipped alone.
