Plum Syrup

I picked up a bag of fresh plums at my neighborhood farm stand. I don't know what I was thinking, except that I wanted some fresh, local fruit. I'm just not a plum girl.
Now what to do with them...since I don't really love the taste of fresh plums, and I don't want to throw them out!
I could add them to a fresh salsa, crush them up and put into tomato sauce...or make plum syrup! I'm a syrup-y kinda gal and I'm pretty sure my manly-man of a hubby won't appreciate plums in his salsa since he doesn't like peaches in it. And as a purist-style spaghetti guy, he just won't get the nuances of plums in his tomato sauce. So syrup it is!
I found this great pictoral instruction guide for making plum syrup...
