For as long as I can remember, I have had access to multiple purple plum trees. Each year the six trees in the parking lot at my work grow amazing flowers and then little, often face bendingly sour, plums. I will sometimes I'll grab a couple plums to eat, most years the plums fall to the ground or get eaten by the birds. A few years ago I had idea to make something with them so they do not go to waste. With the amazingly large yield of plumbs this year, I finally made it happen.
I am making Purple Plum infused vodka. I made one jar with whole fruits and one with halved and pitted fruit. Took some pictures of the process.
Fruit in. Also had some Watermelon, Pineapple, and Strawberry so threw that in a smaller jar.
Hopefully in 1 -12 months I'll have some delicious sipping vodka. If this works out, I will definitely try some different fruits and combinations next time.
I got my eyes checked last week for the first time since I was a kid. Turns out, I had slight astigmatism in one eye. Suddenly, at 31 years of age, I have to wear glasses. Kind of jarring but holy crap, now that I have them I suddenly realize just how much I was straining during my average day-to-day life. Suddenly the screens I look at all day look so crisp and clear!
PSA: Get your eyes checked regularly. Eye issues can creep up on you. Like me stealthily taking the last donut...
