The plums are here.
My neighbor gave me a box of tiny ones, the size of cherries and I picked about a dozen from our tree so it’s time to eat plums.
plum ice cream
plum stir fry
plum ala kings
plums and chips
If I left anything out please let me know.
I have a plum tart with a walnut and date crust and cashew cream chilling in the fridge and a raw plum crumble setting in the freezer. I have high hopes even though I have abandoned hope in a general sense.
I found a dead cat yesterday and I’m feeling a bit loopy today though I don’t blame that on the cat. It’s just a floating kind of loopiness not attached to anything in particular.
oh good lord .. the plum tart??? cashew cream? Yolanda? yer killing me
plum anything is great to me.
My favorite preserves is red plum ~ don't see that on your list.
plum ala kings? hahaa plum sandwiches… well? cream cheese, plums and what else on what kind of bread?
Oh yes I do know the loopy thing.
Plums are a fruit I have never really had much experience with but goodness- all of that sounds so wonderful! Can you make a pie so that Mr. Chips can put in his thumb and pull out a plum?
loopy over here, too. but i always love it when you post. it makes me feel as if the world is somehow good, no matter what obtains over here. love to you, dear Y.
Your post has made me feel plumb loopy.
Carolyn, I forgot about plum preserves! I've given up bread so I don't know what I'd put it on.

well, what you make a plum sandwich with? I'd like to give up bread too.. I gave up sugar … I do eat this really good Genesis bread…
you could put plum preserves on top of cream cheese… you eat any kind of crackers? I buy the water crackers ~ really gotten used to no sugar and these guys are good.
I think the best thing I ever made in my life was plum bbq sauce…don't have the recipe but think it was in the bell canning book.
Oh My! plum bbq sauce. That sounds dead good.
Plum Streusel Coffee Cake:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup walnuts
3/4 stick (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter, cut into pieces and softened
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
For cake batter
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 pound plums (4 to 5 medium), sliced
confectioners' sugar for sifting over cake
Preheat oven to 350°F. and butter and flour a 9-inch round or square baking pan at least 2 inches deep.
In a food processor pulse together streusel ingredients until combined well and crumbly.
Make cake batter:
In a bowl with an electric mixer beat butter with sugar until light and fluffy and add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition, and vanilla. Sift in flour with baking powder and salt and beat until just combined.
Spread cake batter in pan, smoothing top, and arrange plum slices over it in slightly overlapping concentric circles. Sprinkle streusel over plum slices and bake cake in middle of oven 1 hour, or until a tester comes out clean. Coffeecake may be made 1 week ahead: Cool cake completely in pan on a rack and freeze, wrapped well in plastic wrap and foil. Reheat cake, unwrapped but not thawed, in a preheated 350°F. oven until heated through, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool cake slightly on a rack and sift confectioners' sugar over it. Serve coffeecake warm or at room temperature.
OMG! LKD, Plum Struesel Cake! Sounds divine,Thank you so much for sending this along.
