Ashley came home with two boxes of the most beautiful plums last week.
Believe it or not the packers are throwing them out – they are supposedly two small for the supermarkets!!!
There is absolutely nothing wrong with this fruit. It’s perfect with not a mark on it. It’s only failing – IT’S TO SMALL!!!!
Such a waste of beautiful fruit. Honestly I don’t know what the supermarkets want – but to my eye (and James’s) it’s the perfect size.
So what else could I do but make five kilograms of the most luscious plums into a dozen bottles of plum jam that still has that lovely bright pinky red colour to it.
I was worried that the jam didn’t set enough but I taste tested it on some scones when I had a cup of tea and it’s just right.
There’s heaps more plums there so I’m predicting I will be making more jam tomorrow.
