The Plum Patch
When we moved here, the neighbor pointed out the plum patch to the north of the property. We rode his ATV out to get a closer look...Bryony is a terrible noxious weed that is almost impossible to get rid of. It grows on some of the apple trees on our property but I am able to pull most of it out.

I wanted to make some jam. I could only find European recipes that used grams and milliliters in their measurements. Luckily, I have a food scale so this wasn't a problem and I got the jam made. This is the first pectin-free jam that I have ever made. It turned a deep brown color similar to a plum butter. I was kind of hoping it would stay that goofy green color...that would have been great for Halloween...
A wonderful, egg delivery customer shared his Italian Plum tree with us! I also made some Italian Plum jam.
I picked up some grounders, pitted them, and gave some to the girls! They loved them!
Have an eggcellent day!
