Thanks for the recipe Joe. Sounds like something I might have a go at.

Re: Plums

I would use some of them to make Spiced Plum Chutney:-

Spiced Plum Chutney

Ingredients

• vegetable oil
• 4 shallots
• 1 kg mixed plums
• 3 fresh bay leaves
• 1 cinnamon stick
• 5 cloves
• teaspoon ground allspice
• teaspoon ground ginger
• 400 g brown sugar
• 1 orange
• cider vinegar

Method

1. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of oil in a large pan over a low heat. Peel and slice the shallots, then cook gently, or until softened and golden brown. Meanwhile, stone and chop the plums.
2. Add the bay leaves and spices to the pan, fry for 1 minute then stir in the plums. Add the sugar and finely grate in the orange zest.
3. Squeeze the orange juice into a measuring jug and top up to 450ml with cider vinegar. Add to the pan and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer slowly until most of the water has evaporated and the chutney is reduced and thick, stirring now and then as it cooks.
4. Remove the Bay leaves. Spoon the chutney into sterilised jars and seal straight away. Leave to cool and store in a cupboard for a few weeks before eating.

Re: Plums

I will try that recipe ST it sounds lovely.

The squirrel eats most of our plums I find them all over the garden. Though I must prune the tree soon as the plums are mainly at the top now, so I must encourage new growth.

Re: Plums

I've picked the last of the plums this afternoon, they're a bit soft and wrinkly, but i'll cut them up and put them in with my cereal in the morning.
