NEED TO KNOW

Plums – juicy and full of vitamins and minerals – are just the right tonic for January and the black and red varieties Spinneys source sustainably from South Africa are fabulous right now.

HOW TO

Pop into lunchboxes, slice and serve with cucumber ribbons and spinach for a really healthy salad, use to top quinoa porridge, or mix with honey, ginger and granola for a delicious dessert.

TOP TIP

Cooked plums are great too: go with a crumble or roast them to sticky-sweet perfection with chicken in a simple traybake.
