Pickled Plums

Pickled plums

At this time of the year there is always a crop of fruit and vegetables in the garden which needs to be used up. So I decided this year to get into Pickling. To sterilise the jars, I washed them in hot soppy water and dried them off in a low oven setting. If there is any rubber seals on the lids remove these before placing in the oven. These pickled plums are delicious served with vanilla or natural yoghurt.


  • 150ml White wine vinegar
  • 4 tbsp Honey
  • 8 Cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 5 Plums, quartered and destoned


  1. Boil the vinegar, honey, cloves, cinnamon and vanilla for approx 20 minutes with 150ml of water.
  2. Pack the plums into a sterilised jar and pour over the hot mixture.
