Plums are not a consistent part of my diet so it is easy for me to forget about how delicious they can be when they are ripe and in-season. The great thing about plums is that they can be both sweet and tart, providing a variety of flavors for your taste buds. The benefits from eating plums are awesome – plums help manage high blood pressure, lower blood sugar, and improves bone health, to name a few. These plum recipes are for both the sweet and sour lovers, so whether you are a fan of sweet dried fruit leathers or fruit tarts that have a bit of a tangy kick, August’s Flavor of the Month has you covered.
