A Cider is made from apples, a Perry is made from pears, so what is a jerkum?

A Jerkumis an ancient and traditional fermentation of England. Native to the county of Worcestershire, fruit growers would ferment their native plums. At Mission-Trail we consider any whole, unadulterated fermented stone fruit juice a Jerkum.
