NEED TO KNOW
Look out for METIS plums (sometimes called plumcots). A hybrid between a plum and an apricot, this sweet, intensely flavoured fruit is as lovely to look at as it is to eat.
Jostling for top spot on our list of must-bake-again recipes are plum and berry clafoutis tart, billowing pavlova topped with roasted plums and hazelnut and plum galette.
A vaguely sharp plum chutney works brilliantly with cheese and they’re also very good with roasted duck.
