Lots of cherry plums this year. You don't need to have them in your garden, it is easy to find cherry plums here and there along paths, in windbreaks, along the roads and the edge of woods. It has a fine taste and gives colour to jam, stewed fruit, fruit sauce (instead of cherries), chutney and juice. And then it's time to make spyttegrød, a summer-porridge of cherry plums. The stones have not been removed, so they have to be spit out!
