|Local Damson Plums from Crozet, Virginia|
I am out of town, house-sitting for a week, and visited the local farmer's market Saturday. One man had Damson plums, and I bought 2 gallons. They look like wild Damson's (size and shape) but taste sweeter, like the tame ones. (I didn't think to ask him while I was there. Duh!)
I found some really interesting Damson chutney recipes online and I LOVE chutneys! I'll have to decide if I want to make Damson and Ginger, Spiced Damson, or a more traditional plum chutney with a bit of orange Juice & peel plus lemon juice & peel. I may be able to make two runs if I have enough plums after I get home and weigh out enough for a gallon of Damson Plum wine!
I will post photos and recipes when I make whatever I decide. For now, they will go in the freezer.
