Two kilos of plums...

   The other day, on a piece of waste ground, I spotted a tree laden with small yellow plums. So I went back this morning and gathered two basketfuls. "Gathered" basically meant tickling them so they fell in my hand. They're so ripe that for every one I picked, another fell on the ground. The total harvest, washed, halved, pitted and ready for the freezer = two kilos.
    It's too hot to slave over pots of jam or chutney but come the autumn...

You could make plum sorbet! No oven required. :)
