Greetings to all!
This is my first post on RFT! It is wonderful to be here. :D
The plum trees are packed and dropping and I don't even know what to do with them!!! :eek: I have looked around and skimmed through some of my favorite books but I haven't had any ideas. Maybe pie? If anyone has experience with plum pie, what would be a good crust/base? I'm looking for any recipes or suggestions - anything plum!!! ;)
in light and service,
No plum suggestions...but I just wanna say that I LOVE your avatar. :)

Maybe dehydrate them.

I would do a cheesecake.. make a plum syrup for the top, maybe top with dehydrated plums OR incorporate the plums into the cheeze mixture..
I have a freezer full of pluots..planning on doing the same with those :o

Slice them and dehydrate some...I have a recipe somewhere for a raw plum/hoisin sauce..will find it if I can...( it uses the dried plums) makes an incredible raw stir fry.
Otherwise...eat...eat...eat...:D You lucky thing!!!

Plum Hoisin Sauce
(from Raw Food/Real World)
2 cups sliced fresh plums
1/2 c. sesame oil*
1/2 c. mirin*
1/4 cup nama shoyu
1/2 cup maple syrup*
1/2 cup ginger juice
1. dehydrate the sliced plums on a screen at 115 for 8-10 hours, or overnight.
2. In a Vita-Mix blend the plums, oil, mirin, nama shoyu, maple syrup and ginger juice until smooth. Pass thru a fine mesh strainer and season with salt as needed. Place in a squeeze bottle or covered container.
*non-raw ingredients. You can make substitutions but to me this was best as is...the amount you use is small and makes an incredible sauce...beautiful purple color. I use it for spring rolls and for a dehydrated stir fry meal.
