Picture Perfect Plums

~I feel kinda bad for plums. They aren’t as popular with kids these days and their dried doppelgängers, the prune, gets a bad wrap for being a staple of elderly folks and issues of dietary indiscretion. Poor plums. If you give them a chance, they are juicy and delicious! As a kid I grew up eating plums and still eat them to this day. And the Downers Grove farmer’s market had juicy ripe plums for only $3 a basket! Sold! Taking a bite out of this plum was pure bliss. The soft texture, the rich red inside and the juices running down my chin make for the best sweet treat you can find in season.
