Cody’s Midwestern Garden: Plums abound!

The Santa Rosa and Shiro plums have just finished producing their fruit–around 100 pounds of plums off each tree! The Santa Rosas are my favorites with their intense flavor and color. They make beautiful and tasty ice creams and sorbets. The yellow Shiros are delicious eaten out of hand, but they make nice preserves as well. Quite a few of both varieties went to the restaurant where Danica has been making them into her delicious desserts.  My 4th of July afternoon was spent canning plum jam and plum-orange marmalade, and making a plum candy (preserves that are more concentrated and dehydrated like fruit leather).   – Cody, Lidia’s Kansas City
