What To Do With Abundant Plums

Hi All:  We’ve got a whole lot of little purple plums…an easy way of using them follows

Plum Pie

Filling….pick enough to fill a 4 quart pan/pot.  Clean them and cook with 2 cups of water…cook slowly until the plums get all mushy.  Cool the whole mess and strain it thru a collander.  You should have 4 cups of fruit mash.  Bring three cups of this to a slow boil for 3-5 minutes, dissolve 4 envelopes of Knox Gelatin in the warm mixture, add the remaining cup of cool fruit, add two cups of sugar and cook for another 10 minutes until you are sure the sugar is dissolved. Pour into a crust (chocolate graham cracker/store bought) and top with whipped cream/creme fresh…You can spice up the fruit mash with ….rum/cinnamin/lemon…?  Also, you can use more sugar if you like…I like it somewhat tart…You can use this same method with other stone fruits….try it!  Happy Gardening/Farming
