Now to get my beach plums

Rate this topic

10 posts in this topic

ready for some jam and jelly. I picked my one and only beach plum tree that had fruit out of the 8 I have planted. We were able to pick enough hopefully for good batch 8 to 9 jars. I decided to pick them earlier than normal as I have the same problem with cat Birds on this fruit as I do on the tomatoes.. I can let them ripen more in the house safely and with the ones I picked from my outside source of wild ones we should be able to have a little left over to add to another jam we are waiting to pick , my wild apples . So the work begins Peace and Prayers

 Carl, I always enjoyed the little jar of jam you and Judy made and gave to me when ever I was down your way. Delish.

never tried them, what would you compare then to?

It really depends upon where we are able to get our fruit. The wild ones are smaller and harder to get. I had several places on Town neck now all gone from the erosion problems and a local shop that decided to remover them all together      THe cultivated ones my 8 trees do not produce every year and are larger in size. The next time you come down remind me and I will see if you can go home with a jar . It has a delicate taste and you can determine that one for your self. Peace and Prayers.

Joe the supply at times depends upon when Our grandchildren show up and what they get to take home. We began to add a few more to the list over the years and the paradise jam is hard to keep in stock as is the beach plum. We still have a good source for crab apples and last year a good supply with hard picked apples has put some more flavors of the self . Peace and Prayers

growing up  near the beaches we'd have a field day picking tons of beach plums...watched my mother boil them down and putting it in cheese cloth dripping into a large pot...adding some sugar and then filling jars at some point she'd put wax on top of the jam then the lids.
