Plumtastic! It has been a bumper plum year , in fact the last three years have been bumper plum years. We only just finished the plums in the freezer from 2012, so that’s all of 2013 still there for this winter. Which left this as a problem.
That’s what my plum tree looks like right now after I have given loads away and made lots of plummy goodness.
Plums like these
have become plum crumbles, plum cake
plum loaf which is a little weird
made as it is with a tub of cottage cheese. Then there was spiced plum chutney
which bubbled away for an hour or so to become a years supply
so what do I do next?
We had a plumtastrophie this year because the tree was just over laden with plums, look what happened
One snapped off branch and I think another has fallen too but I can’t tell because the rest of the tree gets in the way. So any thoughts on uses for plums or how to stop any more branches going the way of this one, next year? Please.
PS Neighbours and friends all have plums from us already.
