Stir the rum and syrup together until thoroughly mixed. Rinse the plums. Prick the plums with a pin, fork or testing skewer. Wash and slice the lemons. Layer the plums and lemon slices in a large jar and pour the syrup mixture over the top. Refrigerate for at least three weeks. Serve with lightly whipped cream flavoured with vanilla sugar, or with vanilla ice cream.
