With an excess of plums and apparently to much spare time, I decided to try and make wine. The process is reasonably simple, so I have high hopes. No doubt as other fruit come ready I'll be experimenting with other flavours.
The plum harvest has started and we are using every technique to preserve and offset some of the bounty. Drying is one easy, low tech way to save fruit for another day. I made some trays with fine wire mesh that can be hung in the sun.
