SEASONAL FOOD OF THE WEEK
Plums come in many guises - tart or very sweet; for cooking or for eating; and in a range of rich hues from light greens and yellows to dark reds and purples. When we cooked Sugar Plums (see recipes) the golden orange flesh melted and mingled with the crimson skins to form a striking 'sunset on a plate' that tasted every bit as good as it looked.
