Are you using the red plums? This would make better sense if the recipe
calls for sour cherries, as red plums are usually tart.
They are closely related botanically, of the Genus Prunus, and behave
similarly when cooked. Evidently the plums were more readily
available. [They are for me too -- my parents have plum trees.] I'd
love to try this with fresh cherries though, maybe next year.
