Remember those mystery fruits? I tend to agree with those of you who commented: they’re plums! Small plums, but delicious nonetheless. I have since harvested FIFTEEN POUNDS of them in my fridge that await jamming tomorrow, but first i dehydrated a batch.
I love dehydrated fruit of all kinds. They make a great snack, dessert, granola topping and salad ingredient. I accidentally left these guys on overnight, so they’re a bit crispy but still scrumptious. Before dehydrating i tossed them with a tiny bit of citric acid, sugar, chilly powder and their own juice and spread them out evenly on the dehydrator trays. I don’t yet have the Excalibur of my dreams, but hope to get one for Christmas some year soon. My current dehydrator just cuts the mustard, but is a heck of a mess to clean.
I also thawed out some blackberries from last year to add to the jam and will do a small batch of plum sauce to boot. We do love our sweet/savory condiments!
What’s your favorite way to preserve plums?
