INGREDIENT OF THE MONTH: PLUMS

Make the most of this great-tasting ingredient in store now

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.

HOW TO

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.

TOP TIP

A vaguely sharp plum chutney works brilliantly with cheese and they’re also very good with roasted duck.
