Tired Plums

Prugne stanche

This is a typical recipe from the Forlì plains. It was prepared during the summer and the name comes from the fact that, given it takes several days to prepare them, the plums pleat, taking on a “tired” look.

Ingredients: 1 kg of fresh plums, 1 kg of sugar, 50 g of 95° alcohol.

Preparation: it takes 4 days to prepare everything. The first day, boil the water and put in the plums and boil them for 5 minutes. Drain them and add the sugar and then let them sit for 24 hours. The second day, take out the plums and boil the remaining liquid for 5 minutes. Put the plums back in and let them sit for another 24 hours. The third day, repeat everything done on the second day. The forth day, boil the plums with their juice for 10 minutes. Take out the plums and boil the liquid for another 30 minutes, without a cover. Let it cool and then add the alcohol. Put the plums in jars, cover them with the liquid, and hermetically seal them.
