After the king of fruits, it is the season of beautiful, red plums. I picked them from nearest departmental store . They were placed in a wide wooden bowl and was looking very beautiful. I couldn’t stop myself picking them .
Last year when I got fresh plums , I made eggless plum cake. That cake was a big hit and a no fail recipe. Many recipes can be prepared with plums, like ghost aloo bukhara, plum chutney, plum crumble and many beverages.
Wonderfully delicious and juicy Plums may be available year around, but they are at their best between May until September. But here these are available only for one month. People hesitate to buy plums as they are unaware about this fruit. So whenever I see these ,pick immediately and I always look to make a good use of plum.
Plums are plentiful in minerals like potassium, fluoride and iron. Iron is required for red blood cell formation. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure.
