This year our tree has produced an over abundant crop.
Unfortunately we can't keep up with the ripening fruit. We have given many bags full away to friends and still they keep coming. There is no more room in the freezer!
Great amounts have fallen on the ground!
To avoid wasting all the wonderful produce I have been frantically gathering and stewing.
The better plums have avoided the chop!
After washing the plums and cutting them up I put them in a pot!
Although they are quite sweet and juicy I add sugar to assist the stewing process and flavour!
When they have stewed they are left to cool.
For a healthy dessert they are added to rolled oats, dates, low fat milk and homemade yoghurt!
