Need to remove the pit from fresh apricots, nectarines, peaches or plums? Cut the fruit in half from top to bottom. Grasp both halves and twist the fruit in opposite directions while pulling apart to expose the pit. The pit should pop out easily. If not, use a small knife to cut the pit away from the flesh.
Look for plums with a deep, rich color that are firm, yet yield to gentle pressure. A powdery "bloom" indicates that the plum has not been handled too much. Plums are very perishable. Keep ripe plums in the refrigerator for a few days. Underripe plums will ripen quickly at room temperature. Be sure to check them frequently to prevent them from becoming too ripe.
Good news! You get 1/2 cup of the recommended 2 cups of fruit per day in each serving of this delicious warm dessert.
