Bumper Crop of Santa Rosa plums in 2018

2018 was a year for a bumper crop of Santa Rosa plums from our 4-in-1 grafted dwarf plum tree.

Each plum is small so there is not much fruit pulp. So I decided to make a plum compote. it is a simple recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound of plums (quartered; include the pits)
  • 1 cup sugar / honey
  • half cup water or white wine
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 1 cinnamon stick

Directions:

  • Place plums, sugar, and water into small pot under low heat
  • Scrap inside of vanilla bean into pot
  • Add cinnamon stick
  • Cook for 30 minutes
  • Cool for 30 minutes. Remove bean, stick, and any remaining pits.
  • Serve on top of pie or ice cream or both.
