What to do with Plums!

Black Amber, Catalina and Prune plums, all in a beautiful basket from Ten Thousand Villages. Black Amber plums are great for puddings, pies and sauces, Catalinas are sweet, juicy and firm, even when ripe, and the flavour of Prune plums intensifies when cooked, like in a cobbler, for instance.
