Prunes are readily available year-round. You can also use fresh plums when in season.
Once they've been cut and pitted, add prunes (or plums) to your preferred jar.
Use a funnel to top the fruit with brandy.
Store in a cool, dry place for at least 3 days — ideally at least 1 month or up to 3 months.
When your brandy has infused the desired amount of time, strain out the fruit.
Try your plum brandy neat or pour over ice cream. Cheers!
