What do I do with these?

So based on the emailed list of what I was getting this week, I wasn't sure my pickup was worth a post.

But then I got these:


And these:

Plums (apparently yellow ones)

Granted I got some good tomatoes, corn, cucumbers, blueberries and lettuce. But I was thrown by the nectarines and plums. I don't think I've ever had either of these fruits.

But I have tried both now. I do like the nectarines, maybe better than peaches as far as eating them plain, and the plums aren't horrible but I'm not sure I can just eat them all plain. So I am open to suggestions and recipes.

Otherwise this weekend I found a good balance between some downtime and recovery from my cold and some good time with friends. I didn't do much cooking, but I'm hoping to find some motivation this week.


  1. plums make really great pie, and both make excellent jam. Freezer jam is very easy, and requires no special equipment.

  2. Grill the plums on your grill pan and put in a salad.
