What to do with a glut of damsons

Post image for What to do with a glut of damsons

This year has been a bumper damson crop for everybody according to the lady who rang my jam jars through the till at our local independant department store.  And yet it’s only a certain sort of cookbook that has any damson recipes in it, let alone a choice. I’ve gathered together a list of my favourite damson recipes to help out anybody else blessed with too many damsons.  No worries if you don’t have access to damsons – many of these recipes also work well with if you are afflicted with too many plums.

Recipes from Mostly Eating

Other people’s Recipes

I’ve tried and tested all of these recipes over the years with the exception of the damson curd and they’re all excellent, though of course if it’s quantity that you’re going for then damson jam and chutney are the best way to use up large quantities in one go.

Your damsons are so beautiful Sophie – such an amazing colour and I love that downy shine they have. Lovely to think there are all these different ways of using them (and plums in general). Thanks for bringing them all together in one spot.

Now I know what Zwetschgen are called in English! It’s funny how the context you meet a new fruit in influences what you call it. Those muffins look superb. I’ll keep them in mind for autumn.

Hi there this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG
editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m
starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.

Any help would be enormously appreciated!
