TODAY'S RECIPE & NUTRITION TIP! Damson Plum Upside-Down Cake from Great British Chefs. Try this easy-to make but exquisite looking upside down cake with Damson plums! What a seasonal treat, everyone will love it! Find your Blue Damson Plums at Five Points Farm this Wednesday!
What's a Damson Plum and how can you tell the difference between Damson's regular plums! Damsons are longer in shape than plums. They generally have deep blue skins and they are spicier and more tart, making them better for cooking. They're a popular pick for jam making. Damsons also have a reputation for being hardier, thanks to their wild ancestry. They are more forgiving and even less fussy than European plums – but they are susceptible to silver leaf disease. Ripening occurs slowly in September and October. Learn more about Damsons by reading Gardening Etc.'s article "Greengages, plums and damsons – what's the difference?"
