Lots to report but little impetus to report it over the last couple of months.
Taking a break from the 'tyranny' of underwear shopping with Elfa, we were making our way to a local hostelry intent on slaking our thirst with a small libation, when delight of delights, an urban foraging opportunity presented itself. Opposite the pub lay hundreds of these yellow plumbs and quite a few red ones too
Stoning looked like it was going to take a while
Until I remembered my 'Kirchomat' or Cherry Stoner, Which despite sounding like the HighTimes cover girl sept. 1974 is actually a very handy device from Germany.
It works really well and I loaded the the dehydrator
As you can see I wasn't as diligent as I might have been and didn't halve every plum.
I 'may have' slightly over-done the drying time. Second mistake. Schoolboy error.
I left them in the back of Elfa's fridge for a few months, too stubborn to chuck them after putting the time into foraging and then drying them. But as all 'shed blokes' know if you hang on to things long enough, eventually their time comes. The truly desiccated plumbs have found a use. I soaked them in Sloe Gin. They are in a Fallow liver pate.
