plum season is here
We had a very good crop last year, so we did not expect too much this year, as plums tend to have a rest every other year. But may be because of the combination of hard winter and very warm summer, we are having a bumper year. So much better!
Plums from the first tree have been picked and processed, another one will be ready soon and there is more to come later in the summer.
This is the first batch of "povidle", a central European plum preserve, which is thicker and has more concentrated flavour then ordinary jam.
These two dishes are also always very welcome in our family, the plum and almond flan and plum dumplings.
