Plum Dump Tart
I make no excuses for once again being effusive about this time of year. There is a certain smell to the coming of autumn that makes my heart sing. I also do not apologise for again including a plum dessert. British plums are around for such a short time. The foreign ones available all year are hard and tasteless, so we really need to make the most of the best of British. Although I have to say the British strawberry was a source of disappointment this year; tasteless, I put it down to polytunnels and the over production of the Elsanta variety. Did you also notice that the supermarkets were always selling them for half price? This seemed to be for the entire season, therefore I imagine it was in fact the true price. For legal reasons I presume they were on sale for double the price for a nanosecond in April.
If you hate making pastry (I hate having to lift out my marble pastry board) this is the recipe for you. Pastry without the rolling out. And why Plum Dump? Because you simply dump everything in a tin and cook it. Not the neatest looking of desserts, but a harvest time delight.
