These are the latest wild plums that we have been harvesting from the hedgerow today. They are pure yellow plums, the others started yellow and went pink These are pure yellow with yellow flesh and a flavour reminiscent of apricots. I think this batch are going to be bottled in syrup in readiness for puddings during the winter months. Stewed plums and custard or served with vanilla or cinnamon ice cream scrummy. I am extremely partial to cinnamon and cinnamon ice cream - unfortunately OH isn't partial so I have to make everything without and then add it to my portions where I can. Although with the Cinnamon Ice cream I make a batch just for me.
If we manage to get some more, some are going to my mum for her freezer, but I would like to get some for some more jam for the colour variation if nothing else as the different colours also play their part. Especially if you make some old fashioned jam tarts. Could look really good and attractive done as individual tarts or one large one segmented each segment with a different colour. As they say we eat with our eyes first.
