ooohhh..I want to juice those!
ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhYUM me thinks.
omg, they look delicious!
If you can get more, try making plum wine, it is very good and easy to make (takes time though).
I cannot see a plum without immediately thinking of “This is just to say” by William Carlos Williams. Thank you for the delicious picture that brought to mind his delicious words.
I had done so well telling myself I didn’t need an afternoon snack. And then I saw the plums……..the stuff I could make out of that delicious pail of goodies………..Oh well, quess I will go get a snack.
What are your plans for these plums Shreve? (besides chowing down on a bunch, of course) They look amazing. I enjoy your food pictures, especially the strawberries and cream you posted a while back. I went home that night and made myself my own strawberry shake…I just wish the cream came from a cow who loved me too.
how absolutely perfect and delicious looking! merely a “WOW” picture.
I miss wild plums! Lovely.
oh my goodness – WANT!!!
Interesting color. From the time of the year it would appear they’re ripe. Are they local? We have a Pembina Plum tree in our Edmonton backyard. They have dark purple sour peels and a sweet creamy amber inside. The peel really keeps the birds from going after them. You can almost see the “yuk” reaction in the shallow beak marks. Late frost and hail really cut back our crop this year.
A new “ohm” called…
Last year yellow plums were gorgeous and plentiful here. Whenever I’d over indulge at the local farm stand (they were so yummy!) and they would threaten to go bad I’d make a batch of peach plum ginger jam (cobbled together recipes from cookbooks and the web). I love homemade jam, but don’t always have time to can, so rather than spend tons of time processing them to last forever, I just froze it. It was wonderful, and I was able to eat the last jar mid-winter. Ahh, indeed!
Harvested some beach plums earlier this year. Look to be the size of the ones in your pic. Hey why not plant some American Wild Plum trees? They don’t get real tall and are very hardy. Would be great forage for your bee project. Oh plant Borage also, tastes like cucumber (the purple flowers in ice cubes are so Martha) and bees love it, added bonus it will double your tomato crop!
IH ~ “so Martha” … cracking up! And thanks for the tips! yes…….
