I Am Plum Crazy...

Recommended Posts

The Neighbors have a plum tree and bought us over some plums last year which most of them are still in the freezer. Now they are bringing over more. So I am needing some recipes for plum what ever. Any thing will do but need many as Like I said I am PLUM crazy, B):rolleyes:

Thank you, Grump

Good luck to you with your "plum" situation! I currently smush them up for my baby boy. Do you know anyone with an infant/toddler? Maybe a plum smoothie? :rolleyes:

Personally, I would just cut the plums off at the source...tell the neighbors you don't need any more. Or don't answer the door when they knock...or chop down the tree...or donate a bag of plums to charity... I'm out of suggestions. ;)

Other than that, my advice is to google "plum recipes"

FYI: I had a neighbor who constantly brought me tomatos...I finally suggested that she sell them to the local "country market" who stocked fresh produce. After my idea to sell them, she never brought me another tomato. B)

Actually we do use a lot of them for different things. I was just looking for some thing new that some one may have. One of my favorite things to do with them is a smoothie using Plums, Powders coffee creamer, Cinnamon, nutmeg, and a little sugar some times. Put it all in a blender mix and enjoy. Best served chilled.

I got a lot of plums from my farm share this week and made this plum torte. I adapted it from a gluten recipe.

It was really easy and very tasty.

Plum Torte

1 stick unsalted butter, softened

3/4 cup plus 1-2 tbsp sugar

1 cup flour blend (I used Bette Hagman's Featherlite mix)

1/2 tsp xantham gum

1 tsp baking powder

2 eggs

pinch salt

about 10 plums, pitted and cut in half (my plums were the small Italian purple plums - if yours are larger you might need fewer plums)

1tsp cinnamon (or more, to taste)

Preheat oven to 350.

In a mixer, cream butter and 3/4 cup sugar. Add the flour blend, xantham gum, baking powder, eggs, salt and mix well.

Spoon the batter into a 9-inch springform pan (the original recipe said ungreased, and it only stuck a little at the bottom)

Cover the top with the plums, skins down. Sprinkle with cinnamon and remaining sugar.

Bake 50-60 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.
