The summer fruit was here and now it’s gone. It happened so fast. Summer is definitely my favourite time for fruit, and I eat a lot of it. It’s my snacks, my breakfast, and my dessert so I need to fill the void fast. The past couple of weeks the best fruit I can get my hands on is definitely the plums. I love stone fruit so much and I am more than pleased that the plums are delicious at this time of the year. I bought some plumcots at the store the other day and have been snacking on them whenever I need a bit of a pick me up. In even more exciting news, I also came across these small purple Italian plums at my local organic grocery store. They are a lot smaller than the black plums I normally get. While I am sure I could have easily eaten a dozen throughout the week, these little plums were destined for something greater. Something I have wanted to try for a long time now, a plum cake that I read about on Smitten Kitchen a couple of years ago.
