Ok, this one has me speechless, which happens seldom! 😂 Bomb! Incredible! Awesome! Delicious! Wonderful! Yummy! Fantastic! Delectable! Delightful! Sorry, you get the picture!
The best part, in my opinion, of the seasons, in Upstate New York, is the plethora of fresh produce in the summer! The colors and variety are just awe- inspiring! I was looking around the www for yellow plum recipes because I got these awesome yellow plums at my neighbors’, LaMora Farms! This is a nice, elegant, light dessert to serve with a slice of pound cake or a shortbread cookie, perhaps. It would also be awesome on my Grilled Peaches with Blackberry Wine Sauce! The recipe is inspired by the archives of the Boston Globe from 2006.
It is super easy! The most time consuming part is pitting the plums. I had little sugar plums. Full sized yellow plums would take less time.
