Plum crazy

This was a bountiful year for plums. Gathered the last of them last week, and got more produce then I had anticipated.
So, froze most, made a plum/cardamom upside down cake, and yesterday had ribs in a sweet and sour plum sauce.

It is always nice to see fruit on the tree or vine .... just something about it.I go out each day just to look at the grapes ... your plums are so rich looking.

I too am a huge fan of plums. I remember when I was little, in England, when the produce/fruit van came into the neighbourhood, that I would spend a lot of my hard-earned allowance on ... plums! Red, Black, Damson, Yellow, Greengages, and if there happened to be some big fat juicy hairy gooseberries some of those would find their way into my tummy too! Mind you, my tummy suffered greatly, and I would come out in hives, but it was worth it!

Your plums look awesome, Dan! Bought my first plum tree this summer; hope it survives!

I find them all to be extremely hardy Lulu, so it should have no problems surviving our bitterly cold winters.

I too grew up eating a lot of plums, and mom and dad had 6 that were all heavy producers of fruit. The only downfall was that after harvest time, it just seemed everything had plums in it for months. When I made room for the plum trees here, I ordered the same plum trees that my parents had, from the same nursery. I have their original bill of sale, and contacted Boughens to see if they were still available....and sho nuff were

So far have made, plum upside down cake, drozdzowka (plum yeast cake), and used them for both a sweet and sour coating for ribs and an all purpose plum sauce for Asian food.
