● 1 kg cherry plums
● 1 kg sugar
● 400 g water
● juice of 1 lemon
● 1 sprig rose geranium
Wash the plums 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 and sugar and boil for 10 minutes.
Next, add the plums to the syrup and simmer on medium heat for 20-25 minutes for the syrup to reach the desired consistency.
Just before turning off the heat add the lemon juice, stir and remove from the heat.
Finally, put the rose geranium sprig in the hot syrup for 15 minutes to release its fragrance and then discard.
Allow the spoon sweet to rest for a bit and then store in glass sterilized jars.
