what to do with plums

we’ve got a plum tree over our fence that has been producing plums like they’re going out of fashion for the past few weeks. and because i couldn’t bear to watch them all falling to waste on the ground, i dedicated around an hour this morning to pitting them (they’re very small. it was a labour of love. or madness.) and then another couple of hours to slowly stewing them with a small amount of honey.
and it was worth the effort, even if they did reduce to a quarter of the volume i began with! we’re serving them with a banana and poppyseed cake and indulging in throwbacks to our childhoods every time we get a whiff of them. there’s just something about them that takes us right back to bare feet on the grass, eating fruit straight off the tree and feeling the glimmer of sunlight on our backs.

bliss.
