Well hello there food loving friends!! It’s been a while and I am so sorry! I have something pretty exciting up my sleeve, but I’ll save that for another day! Don’t be mad 🙂 For now.. lets check out this super easy and delicious Plum Butter!
I took my oldest, Hailey, to Camp Ondessonk. I went to this camp when I was younger and have been anxiously awaiting the day when my daughter was old enough to go!! AAAAHHHHHHHH…. I can’t believe she is getting so big!! So when we first dropped her off she was a little sad… ok, a lot sad. 🙁
She was just going to the mini camp that was only 3 days, so I wasn’t dropping her off for a whole week, which made it better for her. It was so amazing being back and seeing all of the old things I remembered and seeing all of the newly built structures as well. I just had an overwhelming feeling of comfort.
When we picked her up, she was very excited to see us. She also gave us some ‘tude… I’m pretty sure I embarrassed her because I asked her to introduce me to her friends. I got one of their addresses so Hailey could write back and forth to her…. hahaha.. she wasn’t very impressed!! I had a real “mom moment”!!
She did finally open up and talked about all of the activities she got to try and her two favorite activities were horseback riding and swimming…. it turns out those were my two favorites as well! She had a blast, even if she won’t show it… I just know, ya know!
While she was at camp, the rest of us revisited our Illinois house and had time to relax on the boat. I just love floating in the lake.. my husband on the other hand had to indulge in some adult beverages before he jumped in the water! You know, the typical fear of sharks and other heavily armed fish that roam the lake…. and eat humans.. hahhaha.. it was awesome!
So today I thought I’d share with you what I did with all of those left over plums. I was trying to think of something that was easy and delicious. I happened to come upon a post on Facebook about the very popular Apple Butter Festival in Kimmswick, MO (which is right down the street from me!!!) and a big ding happened up there in that brain of mine…. why not try plum butter!!! So I did some research on some apple butter and I substituted the apple for the plum. I did change just a bit because the plums have so much liquid, there was no need to add any extra water to this recipe.
This spread is a little bit sweet, a little bit tangy, and A LOT bit delicious! It goes great on bread, muffins, and better yet, ICE CREAM!!!!!!!!
It has some delightful spices added to it that give it such a nice flavor! First of all, I’ve always wanted a food processor. Guess what….. I got this awesome Cuisinart food processor from my husband for Christmas last year… and it is aaaaahhhhhhmazing and it made this process alot quicker!
So, without further ado…… PLUM BUTTER!
