Today’s Focus is Plums
Some of the best fruit on a hot summer day are good fat plums. Juicy and sweet, these little gems are enough to satisfy that craving for dessert.
And of course, there are always the health perks in eating in season fruit and veggies. Plums are full of vitamin C and because of this, they also help your body absorb iron. Antioxidant-rich plums help boost your immune system and help keep your skin pretty and hair and nails strong.
In their dried form, prunes can seriously help to manage constipation, but just a few is all that is necessary! And don’t forget to drink your water.
Here’s Your Tip
If you want to cook and skin your plums, the easiest way is to bring some water to a boil, let them sit in the water briefly, remove them from the water, let cool a bit and you’ll see it’s easy to remove the skin from the flesh of the fruit with little to no effort.
Here’s Your Trick
Eat them while they are at their ripest because not only will they be as sweet as can be they’ll also be at their max for antioxidants. Also, I would recommend refrigerating them once they’re ripe. The coolness will be refreshing in the heat, and they’re also juicier when cold.
