Little Plum or "Bargnolen"



This sweet liquor, typical of the hills and mountains surrounding Parma, was usually served after lunch.

Ingredients: 480 ripe wild plums, 2 liters of alcohol, 6 cloves, 1 cinnamon stick, 1 lemon rind (only the yellow part), 10 coffee beans, 600 g of sugar, 1 liter of red wine (such as Bonarda or Gutturnio).

Preparation: put everything together to soak, except the sugar and the wine, in a tightly-sealed jar, and keep it in a dark place. After 30 days, dissolve the sugar in the wine and add it to all the other ingredients. Let everything sit for 20 more days and then strain and bottle it. It is recommended to let it “age” for at least 30 more days before serving it.
