We have entered the plum season and, unlike last year, it is literally raining plums in our garden. Yesterday I went out with a bucket to pick some and I made a crumble with almonds and maple syrup, served with whipped cream. It was oh so delicious!
When we are done eating all the plums we will have had our fair share of potassium and vitamins A and C. For those of you who are so unfortunate to be dealing with depression, I read somewhere that plums contain something, which I no longer remember the name of, that helps the brain to produce serotonin.
In the garden there are also mirabelles (Mirabelle de Nancy), as my neighbour calls them, and they are more yellowish. She uses them to make jam and we allowed her to pick as many as she needed. The rest has already started falling down higher from the tree and I would need a big ladder to reach them. Maybe I should just let our son climb up there; put his climbing skills to good use!
