We have been shopping for a replacement, but these things take time. Surprisingly, I've been enjoying this new car-free life. Walking to my daughter's daycare with her alongside is one of the highlights of my day. Everything is interesting to her: snails, flowers, big trucks, fruit trees, and stray cats. On some days after dropping her off, I walk over to the nearby farmers' market and ogle the freshly picked fruits and vegetables. It was there that I tasted plums that were incredibly sweet and juicy, not at all like the dry and bland fruits that I remember them to be. Our house has not been plum-free since.
And yet, a small family such as ours can only eat so many fresh plums. That's when it's time to cook them into warm, soft, sweet, jammy plum foods. Here is a short round-up of my favourite plum recipes:
- Black Plum Preserves
- Plum Clafoutis
- Purple Plum Torte
- Sugar Plum Crepes
Wishing you plums aplenty before the summer's end!
