  1. If you can get your hands on the Style section of the Sunday Times from the 21st, there are loads of plum recipes in it including main courses.

  2. Brilliant! Thanks Claire 🙂

  3. Plum tart:

    For the pastry:
    1 egg
    200g butter
    400g plain flour
    150g caster sugar
    vanilla extract

    For the fruits:
    900g plums
    100g catser sugar

    Melt the butter on low heat. Add the sugar, half the flour and the egg. Add a few drops of vanilla. Mix well and add the rest of the flour, mix with your fingertips so it looks like breadcrumbs
    In an oiled tin, pour more than half of the mix and press it to the bottom and up the sides. Ensure that there is no gap.
    Wash and dry the plums, cut them in half and stone them. Put them on the pastry case, cut side down. Sprinkle with the remaining 100g sugar, then crumble the rest of the pastry on top

    Bake in the preheated oven, about 1 hour
