The wonders of growing, eating and sharing fruit
Back to London fruit for a while, in order to broaden our record of the varieties of plums that grow there and provide a recipe I haven’t tested myself.
A process used to keep morsels firm in strawberry jam can be applied to other fruit such as apricots and plums. We applied it to Victoria plums in Southfields last September.
Adding enough thickening agent to a jam is a quick way of making the delicious sweets that we call in France ‘pâtes de fruits’. Probably not a recipe for complete beginners, but still not very difficult.
‘I found these quinces in a bag on someone’s front lawn on the outskirts of Seaford.’, did she write. I have quince sharing stories too, and a dream to tell about.
