do you recognize my new friend?
she is lovely, isn't she?
new plum of my life.
i breathe you in.
close my eyes.
reach hand out
to behold you, plum.
supple, meltingly tender, sweet
only a hint of acid
when ripe, eat with caution, or naked. just before swimming.
do you know of what plum i speak? do you know my lovely? from whence? from where, what geography?
tomorrow, monday august 4
myself and a coupla dozen bakers dozen members will visit the farm where i saw these first. do you belong yet? live in northern california? we have some amazing events planned for fall as well. i'm biased, though, because i'm helping to plan a few of them... email me if you want an application.
our only requirement is that you love to bake.
see you soon?
