This Week's Featured Product is Plums

Sweet, juicy plums can be enjoyed fresh or dried, and they also make a delicious jam. Plums are a good source of vitamin C, dietary fiber, and contain several antioxidants. Dried plums, known as prunes, have long been hailed as digestive aids; use them in breakfast cereals or salads.

To soften hard plums, place several in a loosely closed paper bag and leave them at room temperature for a day or two; when they have reached the desired firmness, transfer them to the refrigerator. Ripe plums can be refrigerated for up to three days.

Try a variety of plums at the market ? they range in color from deep purple to vibrant yellow or green.

You can purchase plums from Kashiwase Farm or another of the local farmers selling plums.

Kashiwase Farm is certified organic by California Certified Organic Farmers .
