How To Slice & Pit Plums

Tree-ripened, ready to eat fruit should feel plump & firm but soft. Plums are wonderfully juicy & need very little attention in order to prepare them for recipe applications.

The pit will need to be removed from plums before slicing them. Since they are relatively small in size, quartered plums can be added to fruit tarts or to make jams. Use a paring knife to slice the fruit in half cutting from the stem through the bottom & back up to the stem end. Twist the halves apart & use a small spoon to gently ring the pit to remove it from the flesh. Follow specific recipes to prepare the plums further for cooking & baking.
