Santa Rosa Plums, from Tree to Jar!

Our Santa Rosa Plum tree is filled with rosy, red fruit.
Bowls are filled,
A thorough washing.




Hands are chopping,fruit a swirling,
Ladles dipping, pots are dripping...


Plums in jars!

Our 4oz jars filled with the essence of Santa Rosa Plums, tart and sweet plumminess will be available (limited supply) on Saturday morning, the 30th of June at  The Simple Farms French Garden Market.

Oh, how I love plums. That's one fruit that never tastes right when bought at the supermarket. Last year I bought damsons at the farmer's market and just used up the last frozen bag in possibly the best pie I ever baked - rhubarb and plum.

Wonderful!!
There's little more pleasant in life, than a jar of garden goodness!!

Gee.. now I've gotta run out and look and see what kind of plum trees my hubby planted.

Of course they will take a few more years before we get a harvest like yours :)

Happy weekend!!

It never fails to amaze me that you get all this lovely produce out of gardens only a few miles from my own dried up plot. It's like a little Eden in the middle of the desert. I really must visit during one of the tours.

I've nominated your blog for an award:

Such luscious and delicious plums. Wonder if it is sweet as it is. I love plums but have to peel it first as the skin is too sour for my tastebuds.

When I lived in Colorado I had the best plum tree. Besides jam, I loved to can the fruit for use in plum cobbler!
