Plum Season

Posted in Garden Diary by Jane Griffiths on the December 8th, 2008

Plum season comes earlier every year. When I first started harvesting and bottling it was around Christmas. This year I was already finished by the 5th of December. I have made over a hundred bottles of rose petal and lavender plum jelly. Two journalists visited in the midst of plum madness to do stories on the treasured century-old plum tree.

The Sunday Times called the night before their visit to ask if I could make a recipe involving plums which they could photograph. Although I was on a corporate video deadline I chopped, cooked and stirred and the result was delicious.
Here is a link to the article

And to the recipe
