South Leigh Seasonal Recipes
Home grown plums and damsons have a short season of about six weeks but taste so much better than those usually on offer in supermarkets. They freeze well however, so simply freeze the fruit whole or halve and stone the fruit first. Keep the stones and freeze them in a bag if you are thinking of making jam later- they help the jam set. Plums are delicious in all sorts of baking and desserts but also make a wonderful accompaniment to fattier meats such as pork or duck. E.L.
