I am writing this with yellow stained fingers and nails – not a pretty sight but unavoidable having “processed” close to 10kg of beautifully fragrant and prettily scarlet Victoria plums.
So far, they have been turned into:
plum crumble, plum & oatmeal cake (a great recipe from Waitrose’s archive – having left out the sugar icing glaze which I am not keen on), baked plums with rosemary and molasses sugar, plum compote.
The odd pound has also found its way to appreciative friends and neighbours.
And I’ve got a large bowl with perfect specimens on my desk to stare at and snack from at will.
