Another way to go about this (maybe next year?) would be to soak the plums in your Everclear or vodka for just a couple days, then take the plums out and eat them. Don't know how it would do with plums, but I've had red grapes treated this way and they were pretty awesome. They soaked up a lot of alcohol, but still had that fresh sweet flavor as well.

Make 4 real fruit cakes now. Let them sit a little so they are not fresh/too soft.

Sprinkle with the plum liqueur, age a bit, repeat every week or two. (wrap well in between)

Come near Christmas, ship me one. I'll pay you.

Tasty.

Plums being one of my favorite fruits im sure that is a tasty beverage! A few years back I made a black berry "brandy" from just washed berries sugar and water. After 3 months strained it was very smooth like a wine with great flavor. Aged it a year in the dark and it got sour and hot, burn your lips hot? Don't know what I did wrong, was a very old recipe but I have made in since, drink it after a month and cut it with a little "saw gas" a small cup is plenty to sip on for the evening for a non heavy drinker like me

I'd consider taking out the pits next time, they do technically contain cyinide, not enough to hurt but it may affect flavor slightly. Also the pits are dead weight.

Try starting it with sugar and yeast before the everclear, let it ferment for a bit, or just skip the everclear and distill it(but not in this country because that is illegal and i know nothing about how to do it...)

Or consider yeast, mabey a splash of sugar or not, ferment, then freeze it, and collect the juice, and repeat as long as you can form ice. You are basically creating apple-jack which is a legal grey area.

Were the plums ripe when you added them to the sugar and alcohol?
Thanks
