Bung 'em in a food grade plastic bucket add loads of sugar and wait for three days then find the close fitting lid and fit a bubbler to that.  Find somewhere dark to store it and pour the liquid off the lees in about a month.

Pour the liquid into a regular fermenting vessel untill all bubbling has stopped.

Cheers,   Tony.

The "bubbling in the bags" could be (and probably is) wild yeast. I had this with some grapes a few weeks back, what I would do with the plums is throw a campden tablet in. Like Kleftiwallah said.."Bung 'em in a food grade plastic bucket" crush 1 tablet per gallon on must and stir it in.
Leave for 24 hours,  then work out the sugar you'll need.
