Plum conserve, plum tart, plum cake, Chinese plum sauce, baked plums, stewed plums
The plums are finished… we’ve definitely had enough and the resident and migratory birds have had their annual treat as well …We’ve given so many away, eaten them every way possible …but thinking of cold winter evenings, finally in desperation, have dragged out an old Vacola stovetop preserver to put a few jars of the beautiful President plums aside in sealed jars. I wish I’d dragged it out sooner for some plundered wild Nectarines which finished up as chutney… no doubt to be enjoyed later anyway.
It’s amazing how much late summer harvest there still is on the veggie patch…notably zucchinis,climbing beans and apple cucunbers. We’ve also dug up a great crop of pink-eye potatoes & a neighbour has handed over some feral apples in exchange for some of the plum harvest.
