Plums and Plum Crisp
Queen Rosa: A little hard to split--the flesh wanted to cling to the seed a little. The taste was mild and enhanced with a bit of honey. Upon heating, it developed more flavor with a good tang.
Black Ember: Easy to split. Taste was actually too bland and a little dip in honey made it even more bland by contrast. When I heated it, it became sour, and somewhat flat.
Satsuma: These were very small. When I split one the seed came out taking plum flesh with it all around. The taste was more plumlike and a little drier in texture. Honey was good with it. Heating it made it a little tangy--pretty good.
The next time I go I would buy a basket of Queen Rosa--they were my definite favorite for flavor.
I wanted to make a Plum Crisp, but I needed 4 cups of plums and I only had a little over 1/2 that so I added a couple peaches.
