Yellow Plums

I have some yellow plums that need eating. Any suggestions? It's not enough for jam but too many to eat in hand.

You could cook them up with sugar to make a small amount of preserves that would keep in the fridge (not canned) until you eat it. It should hold up pretty well because of the high sugar content.

You could make a plum crumble with cream.
You could roast them with maple syrup and serve them with thick vanilla yogurt.
You could add chili and onion with some spices and make a chutney. (ask if you want a recipe)
You can peel them and slice them. Pack at the bottom of a buttered oven dish. Cover with cake batter and bake. Serve slices of this with custard or vanilla ice cream.
You can blend them and mix with yogurt and some honey. Freeze in ice lolly molds and freeze for a summer treat.

You could slather on some maple syrup and grill them to serve with ice cream. Makes a great sumertime dessert.

You could package them up and send them my way. They sound good! :)
No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best!

Place in a quart or half gallon jar and cover with vodka, rum or brandy and 2 teaspoons of sugar per pint of spirits. Store in a cool dark location for at least one month.
