Okay, Plums are falling off the trees. I've found plums good for eating right from the tree. Don't care much for plum jelly (don't eat much of it) Any other ideas for all these plums?

dka or Gin over top. Do NOT stir. Let stand at room temperature for 3 months. Strain, then return to cleaned jar. Makes 51/2 cups.

Or how 'bout...

Onion-Plum Sauce

4 C thinly sliced sweet spanish onions
1/4 C vegetable oil
1 LB of fresh, pitted and chopped plums
1/2 C orange juice
1/3 C sugar
1TBSP slivered orange rind
1 Cinnamon stick
1/4 tsp salt
Cook the onions in the oil, in a heavy 2QT saucepan, covered, over low heat, stirring occasionally, for about 20 minutes.
Stir in the remaining ingreedients, heat to boiling. Reduce heat, simmer uncovered, stirring frequently, until thickened, about 30 minutes. Remove and discard the cinnamon.
Serve with roast pork, chicken or ham. Or use as a roasting glaze for pork. I'm hungry!

1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 1/2 pounds prune plums or other plums, pitted and quartered
1 or 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into bits
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sliced almonds
1 large egg, beaten lightly

In a large bowl whisk together brown sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon and add plums, lemon juice, and butter. Toss mixture well and spoon into a shallow 3-quart baking dish.

Preheat oven to 375F.

In a food processor pulse together granulated sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, and 1/2 cup almonds until almonds are ground fine. Add egg and pulse until blended. Spoon flour mixture over plum mixture, pulling some plum wedges up for presentation. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup almonds over cobbler during last fifteen minutes.

Bake cobbler in middle of oven 45 minutes or less, or until golden and bubbling, and cool on a rack.

Serve cobbler warm or at room temperature.
A dollop of vanila ice cream on top would be great!

Serves 12
(or 6 hungry backwood hicks :-)
