Thanks CC, may as well go with the cheapest.  Like Cookie, I'll wait for the plums to become available now.

Will be making this when our plums are ready and am also wondering if it would work with cherries using  same method ?

I don't see why not. I love cherries but they are so expensive over here.

Can this be made with a mix of plums?  DS2 brought some in last night and ther are some normal big red ones, yellow ones with a strange looking bump on the bottom of them  (never seen them before) and some I think are damsons.
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.
