Health benefits of Plums

Plums are low in calories (46 calories per 100 g) and contain no saturated fats; vitamins (C, A, Beta Carotene, B-complex, K) and minerals (iron,potassium).


Selection

Pick plums rich in purple, red or yellow color and have sweet aroma.


Preparation

When ready to eat, rinse them in cold water. Fresh ripe plums should be enjoyed as a whole along with skin.


Storing

Harder plums you can keep at room temperature in which they will ripen quicker. Plums that are soft to touch off the tree are ready to eat.


Freezing

You can freeze them whole and just bring out to room temperature for baking. We wouldn't recommend freezing them for anything else.
