New plum recipes
Sweet and juicy, plums are a delicious ingredient to cook with and bring a wonderful, rich flavour to your food. Plums are not just full of flavour, they're healthy too! A great source of potassium, fibre and vitamins, just 2 medium plums counts as 1 of your 5-a-day. If you pick some up when they're in season (from August until October) they'll be extra tasty and probably cheaper in the shops too.
