For me, Italian plums mark the end of summer – this is their season. This grain free rustic plum tart is a great way to use those tasty plums!
Considered a stone fruit – along with peaches, nectarines, apricots and cherries, they are the short lived treats of summer and need to be appreciated while they are available locally. Italian plums (prunes) appear at this time of year, ready to cook into something delicious.
Stone Fruit Tart
These small plums are not very good for eating raw, but once cooked, they explode with flavor, become soft and sweet and don’t even need to be skinned! So easy for the home chef!
Also know as drupes, these stone fruits are characterized by the hard pit or stone which develops from the ovary wall of the flower. This recipe is really simple and will impress any guest!
