Christmas has gone and the New Year is almost here, and along with that comes stone fruit season! We are drowning in plums at the moment and desperately looking for preserve recipes – chutneys, stews, but not jams – we don’t really eat much jam.
Liam in particular likes collecting the fruit and searching for recipes – thankyou Margret Fulton – so we’re not short of ideas. The chickens also like the plums so it’s a race to get the wind fallen fruit each morning.
So much fruit from one tree… it has got us worried about Autumn because we have five apple trees that are busting themselves in fruit at the moment – do I thin them out? What apple recipes do we have for apples? How many preserve jars do we need?
