Fill the glass jars 2/3 full with the prunes and the red wine syrup. Seal your jars fingertip tight. This means just barely closed and still possible to open with your fingertips. Once the ring stops turning freely, it is tight enough (Air will be able to escape from the jars when you submerge them in water. Jars sealed too tightly can burst in the water.) Add spices if desired.

Set the glass jars in the water bath, and cook for 2 hours. At the end of the time, take out the jars being careful not to burn yourself. Open the jars and pour the liquid onto a plate or tray large enough to allow you to create a layer of syrup no more than 1 cm. Make sure the plate or tray has edges that do not the syrup spill.

Let the syrup cool to room temperature, and put it in the freezer. Every 30 minutes, mix it well with a fork, scraping the bottom and edges of the plate and breaking up the larger pieces that eventually form. After about 4 hours, a red wine granita will have formed.
