I’ve only been away for a few days and behind my back the plums are ripening with a vengeance. The tree is laden and the branches bending with the weight. I don’t know what variety they are but they are yellow, fat, juicy and sweet and I can’t stop eating them like sweets.

I’ve picked around 6lbs today but I know the ripening will accelerate over the next week or so. So what follows the eating straight from the tree glut? plum crumble of course, that’s a must have, plum chutney, with Delia’s spiced plum chutney recipe,  I’ve got a bottle of vodka left over from Christmas so plum vodka?

I’ll let you know how I get on.

Let me know if you have any good ideas.
