What to do with a bunch of plums?
A friend just dropped off nearly a tree's worth of what I think are either little plums or Italian prune plums (I think just regular -- there is some green on the skin).
I can not decide on a recipe to make! I was thinking about plum crisp (inspired by Sarah Leah Chase and Ina Garten)...then I recall the plum kuchen recipe from NYT from not long ago.
There was some talk awhile back about the same recipe -- which calls for those italian prune plums.
What about traditional plum recipes? I'm thinking most likely a fruit centric dessert -- like a crisp --- that I can serve with vanilla ice cream.
Do you have a favorite preparation you recommend that I should try?
There is a legendary recipe on this board for Galleygirl's Plum Tart...will try to find the link for you; so many have raved about it! Okay, it was for a PEAR tart but others have successfully used plums in this...gotta sign off, huge thunderstorm approaching...here's the link:
