Freezing Plums

August 28, 2012

Frozen cherry plums.To prevent plums from turning brown I've read that you can wash them in a solution of water and lemon juice. True or false? Does it work and what's the amount you use of each, water:lemon juice?

You can use about a teaspoon of lemon juice added the the plums that you are preparing to can. Not sure about the ratio for a water lemon wash.

It is not hard to freeze plums

  1. You will need to cut the plums up in bite size pieces and remove the seed from the middle.
  2. Put them in a freezer zip lock storage bag and date on the bag.
  3. Advertisement

  4. When you remove the bag you can make plum jam or eat the plums again.
  5. I wouldn't keep them in the freezer longer than 6 months.
  6. You can also use the vacuum seal bags to freeze the plums in.
  7. No matter how you cut them up it is best to remove the seed in the middle before freezing them.

How do I freeze fresh plums?

According to an old Farm Journal cookbook I have, plums are better canned for dessert than frozen however here ya go:
Wash and cut the plums in half, removing the pits or leave whole. Pack in syrup made with 3 cups sugar to 1 qt. water or pack dry. Remove as much of the air as possible and freeze.


Note: packing dry without syrup works well if you are planning on making jam from the plums (otherwise they get a little mushy when thawed).
