Bottling plums in water
I have opened a bottle of plums which I bottled in water by packing a Kilner Jar with plums then pouring boiling water over before bringing the bottle back to the boil, keeping it at boiling point for 3 mins then screwing the top on. I kept tightening the top until the jar was cold and then put it in a cool dark place. This was 2 years ago and when I opened it yesterday and cooked the plums in a pie they tasted lovely. These plums were grown in my friends garden opposite my house in Leicestershire in the UK.
