Sorry I am so late posting this. I started at the end of June and am just now getting done. :o)
I finally made it to Missouri. After a long 12 hour drive with my husband, three kids and the dog, we finally made it. I will have to say that this year I ran across a special treat. My mother-in-law has a plum tree that is producing plums like crazy. I hate to say this, but I didn’t even know she had a plum tree. LOL.
I was amazed at all the plums that were just hanging from the tree. It looked just like a bunch of grapes, but only much bigger. They were everywhere!! After seeing how much fruit was available, I immediately started researching on how to make plum preserves and that is just what I made.
I can’t tell you how much I have enjoyed being able to step out side in my flip-flops and pick plums with my kids. My youngest enjoys it the most. There is just something about finding a ripe plum, wiping it off on your shirt and digging in, it is just heavenly.
Well I wanted to share my adventure with you and I will admit I had no idea what I was doing, but it was a lot of fun!! My oldest son loved being my assistant and I think we finished by midnight. I have written out the recipe so I hope you enjoy.
