Woke up today, harvested a bunch of tiny plums from the tree in the backyard, started pickling them. My first pickling.
Still have so many plums left. Everyone's telling me to make jam, seems like I have to go buy some new jars and lids for that (and spend another hour slicing and pitting the little guys.)

Do not go to pickledplum.com for a recipe for plum pickles, you will not find one.

nice! make a plum cake, too. i want to make peach jam this year but i dread the process of removing the skin.

if I make plum jam it'll definitely be preserves, leaving the skin on. plum cake sounds amazing actually.

I’ve had plenty of Homemade plum and damson jam with the stones left in. No real harm in it you just turn a big job in to a small job, done at toast spreading time.

Found a low-effort jam recipe, made some mistakes, tried it and wasn't impressed.
This morning I put a few spoonfuls in with my Greek yogurt and granola and ... magic. That added sweet+sour makes it a completely different dish.
Sunday I get to see how the pickles turned out.
