The Santa Rosa plum is rich and tangy, with soft flesh and a nice floral character. It’s yellow on the inside and red or purple on the outside. They tend to be smaller than commercially available plums, so require a little more work to make jam.
Plums made spicy and sweet for a dipping sauce makes a nice gift, preserves well and goes with savory or sweets. It can be made with plums or apricots. Keep the seeds in to up the heat! Works with chips and veggies too.
