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).
If I use apple juice to freeze the plums, will they taste OK later when I want to make jams?
