  • 3 1/2 cups chopped plums
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 vanilla bean split in half


  1. Combine the plums, sugar, water, and vanilla bean in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat then reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally until the liquid has reduced and the mixture has thickened.
  2. Place a fine mesh strainer over a large bowl and pour the plum mixture into the strainer. Press on the solids with a spatula to extract all of the syrup then discard the solids. Allow the syrup to cool then store in the refrigerator for up to a week.

To make a drink

  1. If making a soda, fill your glass with ice. Then fill the glass half full with syrup and top with champagne or sparkling water.
