plum

A plum is a fruit of the subgenus Prunus of the genus Prunus. The subgenus is distinguished from other subgenera (peaches, cherries, bird cherries, etc.) in the shoots having terminal bud and solitary side buds (not clustered), the flowers in groups of one to five together on short stems, and the fruit having a groove running down one side and a smooth stone (or pit).
Mature plum fruit may have a dusty-white waxy coating that gives them a glaucous appearance. This is an epicuticular wax coating and is known as "wax bloom". Dried plum fruits are called "dried plums" or prunes, although, in many countries (Li hing mui for instance), prunes are a distinct type of dried plum having a wrinkled appearance.

    Recipe Plum and Preserved Lemon Chutney

    I have recently been making quite a lot of chutney whilst preserving fruit from my pear tree and a while ago I had to cut back my lemon tree, so I had quite a few preserved lemons. This recipe uses quite a surprising amount of preserved lemons once you have removed all of the flesh which you...

    Recipe Tray Bake Chicken with Plums, Soy, Honey & Mustard

    Its all about sweet, sour and salty and then the kick of hot mustard. Use fairly sour plums if you can. I used skinless ‘bone-in’ chicken thighs but you could use legs or drumsticks. Skinless chicken works best for the glaze, I find. You could leave out the shallots but the whole garlic cloves...

    Recipe Gingered Duck with Aubergine, Plums and Orange

    I used just two duck legs here but to be honest you could use four as there is more than enough sauce produced by the vegetables and fruit. If you use four duck legs then double up on the marinade ingredients. Serve this with new potatoes or mashed potatoes to mop up the sauce. Ingredients...

    Recipe Applewood Smoked Goat’s Curd with Lacy Whey Pancake and Plum Chutney

    There are three recipes in one here. Rather satisfyingly, the pancakes are made from the leftover whey from making the curd. I made this into a fancy presentation but you could just as easily make standard American style shaped pancakes and serve the curd and chutney with them. The plum chutney...

    Recipe Mango Chicken with Plums

    This Asian inspired dish uses two different stone fruits: plums and mango. The contrasting colours look so beautiful together! The dish produces a delicious sweet and sour sauce all by itself and there is no need to use any oil. You could use chicken thigh fillets and reduce the cooking time of...

    Recipe Plum tart

    Not exactly a recipe, more an experiment! A punnet of Victoria plums, bought a week ago for nibbling as and when, just weren't being eaten, and looked like going to waste, which just ain't on in this cash-strapped household! While wondering what to do next, I made some shortcrust pastry. 200gm...

    Plums

    Yesterday, a friend gave us a large bag full of plums from his tree. They are delicious, but there are too many for us to eat before they go bad. I've given some to another friend, but what could I do with them, other than make a jam (I don't think there are enough for that)?
