I used Victoria Plums
which I have in the garden,
but all good plums can be used
Procedure without liability

Clean the jars of 2 liters with boiling water and let it dry itself. Pour a small amount Atamon in the hot glass and then close it. Shake the jar well and pour the contents out. The sitting on the inside as well as the cover, is white, when the glass is dry. This is the "exercise" aimed at, which is to allocate a preservative on the inner side of the glass.

The plums rinse in cold water and dry them before halved and stoned. Then place them in the glass in layers up to the brim. Syrup brine poured over the plums.

The glass container sealed with the seal and put in a cold, dark and dry place. Now formed vacuum in the glass when the glass is cold, and it helps to extend shelf life. In the first week I usually take the glass out and shake it so that the plums coincide and all plums are below the liquid. Unopened glass I've had in two years, but when they first opened, I put the glass in the refrigerator and then they can keep for about 1 month.

Hint: Can not find Madeira, then use a Portvin. Both types of wine has a strength of between 19% and 20% - also called liqueur. Here you will find plums varieties and season. Here you can see pictures of 8 different Danish plums. See my Snapse calculation.
