A friend gave me 4 pounds of Damson Plums from her tree. They are also known as blue plums. I couldn’t imagine what I would do with all of them. They are small but full of flavor. After reviewing a few recipes, I decided to go with an original creation. I always have blueberries in the fridge and I thought the combination would be tasty. I had wanted to add peaches, but the ones I had bought at a local orchard were not ripe enough. It took about an hour to quarter and remove the pit of all the plums.
