Black raspberry plums are a stone fruit such as cherries, apricots, and peaches. These plums have black magenta skin with rosy pink flesh. These plums are tender and juicy with a refreshing sweet berry flavor with a touch of balanced acidity.
Uses: Plums are excellent raw as a topping for frozen desserts, tarts, or pies. Chopped plums can be cooked gently over a low heat with sugar to make a delicious cocktail syrup or compote.
Plums also make surprisingly good pickles. Try steeping sliced plums in 2:3 parts rice vinegar to sugar with salt, star anise, ginger, and cinnamon overnight.
