The plum season has already started and I am indulging in those wonderful fruits which mark the beginning of fall and the end of summer...
It is one of my favorite fruits, along with berries and the exotic kind (lychees, rambutans, mangoes, jackfruit, etc...). During 10 months (our plum harvest time lasts from the middle of August till the end of September), I long for that smooth-skinned, luscious purple-blue gift of nature. Plums are very healthy, so versatile, gorgeously fragrant, refined tasting, beautiful and debilitatingly delicious that it is (nearly) impossible for me to compare them to any other fruits. No other fruit is as addictive as plums!
Every week, I buy one to two kilos (2-4 pounds) plums. I gobble them raw, use them to make compote, tarts, cakes or any baked treat. I never get tired of their scrumptiousness and, if possible, I could serve them at every meal (lol)... Why can't that dreamlike harvest time never end?
