Spending our summer holiday with the plums that are over abundantly filling our little farm this year. But who can complain, these plums appear every few years and the weather apparently agreed with them this year..picking and preserving the little golden gems now!
Besides plum preserves and marmalade…. here is another way to enjoy the plums for breakfast with these muffins….of course with a cappuccino
