   Prick plums with sterilized needle to prevent bursting.  Combine sugar,
   water, orange peel and cinnamon sticks in a large sauce pot.  Bring to a
   boil.  Reduce heat and simmer a few minutes.  Add plums, a layer at a time
   to heat through, about 2 minutes.  Remove plums from syrup.  Peel skins, if
   desired.  Pack hot plums into hot jars, leaving 1/2 inch head space. Reheat
   syrup to a boil.  Remove from heat; discard cinnamon sticks. Stir in port.
   Pour over plums, leaving 1/2 inch head space. Remove air bubbles. Adjust
   caps.  Process 20 minutes in boiling water bath. Yield: about 3 quarts.
