● 1 kg plums
● 900 g sugar
● 300 g water
● juice of 1 lemon
Wash the fruit very well and remove the pits with a pen. Using the bottom of the pen press the pit from the base of the fruit and remove the pit from the other side.
In a large pot, put the water, sugar and the plums and boil for about 10 minutes until the peels crack open.
Turn off the heat, cover the pot and leave it overnight.
In the morning, remove the plums using a slotted spoon, put them in a bowl and remove the peels that have cracked.
Put the pot on medium heat until the syrup reaches the desired consistency.
When the syrup still needs about 5 minutes to be ready, add the plums and boil all together.
Turn off the heat and allow it to cool.
Allow it to cool and if the syrup is still too runny, boil for a little longer until it reaches the desired consistency.
Store in glass sterilized jars.
