Just a few days ago, the 3 1/2 pounds of plums given to me by my neighbor, were washed, depitted, and cut up. I put 3 cups of sugar with the plums and let it sit for 1 hour. Then, the recipe said, boil for 8 minutes and put in 5 half pint jars. Here are 3 of them. I gave my neighbor and a friend of mine in Garstang one to try. I told them to be completely honest with me on what they thought. So far I haven't heard anything. Hopefully, it's not that bad :(
We'll see! Can you see in the background, Ms. Emily is still producing tomatoes. Little Keith's tomatoes are even tinier than Ms. Emily's, but redder and juicier.
