  1. >Argh! the colours of summer, is there any recipe you write that doesn't appeal. Hungry! Wish you were nearer, I have all these early plums to find a home for. It's plum wine again I'm afraid, now don't you feel sorry for us;-)

  2. >Woodland Fay: Glad you like the recipes – I'm always afraid they are a bit vague as I'm a bit of a 'handful of this and a handful of that' cook. Would love to help you out with the plums!!
