The plums make great jelly, just boil strain, take juice to make jelly

Just a suggestion, if you go on the Bernardin Canning Website, they have tons of recipes to look at for fruit. Hope it helps.

Although the comments here were posted a while ago, I would like to add what I would do with reine claudes:
1) EAT THEM FRESH! Really. That's the best way to enjoy the short season of reine claudes. Some years I've missed out on them just because the season was so short, and they turned bad after the first heavy rain falls.
2) If you want to can them: Even better than jelly in my opinion is a jam of reine claudes. I've seen stores selling it in France quite often, sometimes here in Germany, too. A real "canning" as you would do with cherries doesn't do much to the green gage plume/reine claudes, I think.
