Black Doris plums

Some for eating …

… and some for freezing …

… vacuum packed:

Black Doris plums have dark dark firm flesh and are quite tart, the stones come out easily so they are ideal for bottling or freezing. They make the best stewed plums and plum jam. My father adored them, and I always think of him at Black Doris time of year.

Next up is the Omega plums, which are similar but possibly even better for eating raw.
