Re: Plums

I got several pecks of plums from the local orchard this summer.  Wonderful 
little purple ones as well as golden plums.  Of course, no one can eat them 
quick enough to keep them from over-ripening.  So, I skin and seed them, and 
pack them in ziplock bags in the freezer.  When I'm ready for a super dessert 
this winter, I make 'plum dumplings'.

All I do is thaw four cups, mash them slightly to make a thick sauce, sweeten 
to taste, heat and then thicken slightly with corn starch.  Then I put the 
hot sauce into a serving dish, top with teaspoons of your favorite dumpling 
mixture, cover tightly with aluminum foil, and bake in a 350 oven for 20 
minutes to half an hour.

The result are what I call my plum dumplings.  And they're wonderful! :-)

Hope this helps.

 with them other than jam.  I searched the archives, and got a lot of
 hits for plum tomatoes, but not a lot for plums!  Any vegan ideas that
 don't involve canning?  I'd really appreciate any help - these plums are
 delicious and it's time to use them! >>
