Would you pop "Plum Jerkum" in your mouth?


If only we had a Sidney James “yuk yuk” sound effect generator to hand. Commence playground analysis.

“Another unusual drink, from Warwickshire, is plum jerkum or jercum, a country cider rather like perry. It differs from standard cider in that it is made from plums instead of apples. It was said that the brew “left the head crystal clear while paralysing the legs“. Originally it would have been made from the white-fleshed, Warwickshire Drooper plum, but this variety is now very hard to find.”
