Plum Schnapps Recipes

Nastoykas (Tinctures)

   Plum schnapps - based on sweet and fully ripe plums - is one of my top favourites. It has a rich and wonderful liqueur-like taste, fine fruity flavours, and a great after-taste. Serve with duck, chicken or other poultry, pork, veal, lamb, venison meat, red meat, pie, ice cream, dessert, fruit salad, cheese and cheesecake. Excellent as after-dinner drink.
Plum Schnapps

10-15 plums
Unflavoured vodka - 40% alcohol content (80 proof)
Put 10-15 plums in a clean glass jar with tight-fitting lid. Cover well with clear, unflavoured vodka - 40% alcohol content (80 proof). Let steep for 3-6 months or more in a dark place at room temperature, 18-20°C (64-68°F). Shake lightly and taste it from time to time. Strain and filter your infusion into a clean glass bottle or jar with tight-fitting lid. Store (age) for at least 2 months in a dark place at room temperature before serving.
