Moved 7 years ago to a property with an 80ft garden which was just like a field full of weeds! My husband has helped me create the garden of my dreams

The freeze well. Cut in half de-pit and freeze. Then can use in crumbles through the winter.

Plum jam @Nettle 😊😊 I have a 15 min microwave recipe and it's really nice. Plum wine sounds good tho but don't have any winemaking stuff...

OK you need 500g of plums stoned and roughly chopped and 400g sugar or jam sugar ( I've done it successfully with either) . Mix plums and sugar into a large Pyrex bowl. Cook for 6 mins in microwave then stir. Then do another 3 mins and stir again. Then keep repeating every 3 mins. It can take up to 15 mins but just test on a cold saucer to see if jam wrinkles every 3 mins. This batch took 12 mins. Then decant into sterilised jam jars and pop lids on. This makes 3 small jars 😊
