Has anyone got a good tried and true recipe for a pie made with purple plums, the oblong ones with a clear ridge down the side, dark blueish purple, often called italian plums or prune plums?
Yes, i know i can google it, but i can't be sure who tried the recipe.
They're eminently in season and i overbought them and thought they might make a good pie.
or ? anything else except clafoutis? (The pictures always look so wonderful but I've tried it many times with many recipes (even good old julia child) and it always comes out like a damp pancake. I'm thinking it's supposed to be like a damp pancake
I sort of remember a recipe i used to make, with plum halves baked in the oven with sugar and maybe some nutmeg or something mild, and maybe a cream?
all ideas welcome
