It is still fermenting, very slowly. To answer some questions:
The recipe came from a book on fruit. Unfortunately I no longer have the book (only the recipe) and can not remember what it was called. The directions I listed are all I have.
The port tastes mostly like sugar...
I have been trying to make plum port from a recipe, which goes as follows:
9 Cups of plums
9 Cups of sugar
16 Cups boiling water
Cut up the plums and pour the boiling water over them. Leave for a week stiring and squeezing daily.
Strain through Muslin cloth and add the sugar stirring...
