A big swap for apples and plums
We did a big swap recently with a couple in Whickham who have a plum and an apple tree in their garden. I wasn't quite expecting the quantity. I ended up filling the back of the land rover, mainly with apples but with a decent quantity of plums as well.
The plums had to be used straightaway as they don't last. A day was therefore spent making apple and plum jam, plum chutney and bottled plums. I'll post the recipes for each soon. Below was my day's handiwork.
