Besides canning plums for future consumption or projects, the other two methods of preserving them would be to either dehydrate or freeze them.
With so many plums this year, I was able to try both methods. To find out about dehydrating plums see my post Dehydrating Damson Plums at Simply Grateful Canning.
To find out about freezing plums check out Freezing Damson Plums also at Simply Grateful Canning.
Getting down to the nitty-gritty with the plums. I have only one more canning project to post and then a really cool recipe using either fresh or frozen plums inspired by a dish my mother-in-law used to make for Hubby which was a recipe from his grandmother. Posts coming soon!
The excitement of almost being done with the plums is overwhelming. I can hardly sleep just thinking about not having a single plum to pit for another year. Of course for weeks I couldn’t sleep just thinking about all the plums I did have to pit, so maybe it’s just that I can’t sleep — the wonderful effects of menopause…but we’ll save that for yet another post.
For now, we are down to about five pounds of plums and counting, and for this I am — Simply Grateful.
