If pickling specifically means preserved in vinegar then the title of this post is misleading. But since people who are very full of alcohol can be referred to as being pickled I’m assuming it’s not wrong to use the term for the pictured vodka plums.
They’re making another appearance here due to them no longer being in their original jars (left). About a week after I started them off I was given a couple of kilner jars and they promptly got transferred.
The trouble with the original jars was that they weren’t properly sealed. So when I turned them upside-down to help along the pickling process some of the vodka would leak out. With lots of people looking forward to sampling the results come Christmas every precious drop counts.
