Plumcots are a type of stone fruit that is the result of a hybrid cross between plums and apricots. Golden treat plumcots are juicy with vibrant golden skin and pale yellow flesh. These fruits have a tart lemony skin with a refreshing flesh that is rife with flavors of honey, plum, and citrus
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.
