Remember all those plums we harvested back in August?  Well, we ate a bunch, gave big handfuls away to the neighbors, made plenty more into plum butter... and used eight pounds of them for plum cordial!  After three months, it's ready for sipping.  It was worth the wait.  We had some with Thanksgiving dinner, we'll give some away as gifts, and we're taking a bottle of it to game night tonight.  (We created the labels by hand, using calligraphy pen and ink, marker, and gold pen.)  But one of our 4-quart jars will sit on the shelf for a while longer.  Maybe this time 2014 we'll open it up and see what kind of magic happened while we waited!  In the meantime, here are some photos to savor.
