As always, I hope you find some inspiration in these recipe ideas and find something delicious to treat yourself and loved ones with.
Starting off with with perhaps my favorite plum dessert ever: crostata -- where juicy baked plums meet a delicious cookie-like tart crust. Serve with some vanilla ice cream and you're in for a real treat!
Another not to be missed classic dessert in my books is clafoutis: a souffle / pudding type dessert with spiced plums stewed in their own juices. Delicious!
Balsamic Plum Ice Cream
For something a little different, this plum-filled ice cream is a real winner too. A creamy, no-churn fruity vegan ice cream — perfectly tangy, sweet, and refreshing.
Balsamic Plum Oat Crumble
While we're on a 'balsamic plum' note, try this super simple autumnal, juicy plum crumble if you're feeling like something that packs a lot of flavor with minimal effort.
Spiced Plum Jam
If you want something simple or more of a staple (or something that makes a lovely homemade gift!), try this delicious refined sugar-free plum jam, spruced up with a hint of warming spices.
Mirabelle Plum Jam
If you're lucky enough to find yourself in possession of some mirabelle plums, try this jam alternative instead. This recipe makes deliciously sweet and tart orange and mirabelle plum jam, with a beautiful golden color.
