It is prune and plum season in Oregon — one of my favorite times of year! In today’s video, I show you how easy it is to freeze plums/prunes for use in the winter. In the off-season, I use frozen plums to make plum sauce or we toss the plums in smoothies. The great thing about using frozen fruit for smoothies is it acts like ice, too!
How To Freeze Plums/Prunes
Wash plums. Pull off stems. Cut in half to remove pit. Discard pit and put halves in a freezer bag or freezer container. (You can lay them out flat on trays to freeze individually if you prefer.) When the bag or container is full, transfer to the freezer. Pry apart with a knife when ready to use; they pop apart really easily. Enjoy!
Next week, I’ll show you how to dehydrate plums or prunes.
How do you preserve plums or prunes? What are your favorite recipes for using them?
