    I love plums. They are such a versatile fruit but they don’t get appreciated as much as they deserve! Very cheap too.

    We have a plum tree up the road and I am always sad to see them lying on the floor to rot……May have to come and pick some and try some of these recipes

    Ooooh I adore plums, as does my mum. One of my simple favourites is stewed plums with a little bit of mascarpone…nom!
