Plum Pie Question

Hi all -
I have a recipe for plum pie that I'd like to try, but the recipe does not specify what type of plums to use, so I was wondering if anyone out there has a recommendation (just the run-of-the-mill purple ones or something more exotic). Also, the recipe instructs to pit and slice the plums, but it says nothing about skinning them; is it necessary to do this or are they usually used with the skins?

Thanks,
Tim

I've never made a plum pie before but, I would skin them for sure.

I have never made a plum pie before either but I think you would use the purple plums. I did a google and the 3 recipes I looked at were all for the purple. All 3 said to slice and pit plums but didn't say anything about the skin. I personally would skin them because the skin can be tough and sometimes quite sour.

Thanks for the replies. I will probably use purple plums (if only because that's all I'm likely to find at the local grocery store!) and will skin them. That's what I figured would be the best thing to do, but since none of the recipes specifically said I should, I thought maybe I was missing something.

I will share it if it is good; the recipe is from Bon Appetit a year or two ago, but I'm using my own pie crust and topping. Never really used plums in anything before, but the picture was pretty, so we'll see.
