1 1/2 750 ml bottles Rhone-style

A friend in France serves this wine as an aperitif in win- ter. It
isvery warming on a cold night and carries the scent of the summer
pruneplum.Rinse and carefully dry plums. Put in a clean glass jar and
sprinklewith 1/4 cup of the powdered sugar and the Cognac. Cover and
let themixture stand for 5 days in a cool, dark place, turning the
jaroccasionally. At the end of the 5 days, add wine. Cover and let
standanother 5 days, turning occasionally.Remove fruit from the jar and
crush it to extract all the juice. Discardpits and skin. Return juice
and pulp to wine mixture and filter it intobottles. (A coffee filter or
doubled cheesecloth in a funnel works quitewell.) Cork the bottles and
store in a cool dark place or in therefrigerator.Makes two
750-milliliter bottles.PER 4 FLUID OUNCES: 105 calories, 0 g protein,
