How to pick the plums for this muffin recipe.

Picking out aplum is tricky. The color doesn't give you a hint of what is inside. Of course, the best way to pick a perfect plum is to get them right off the tree in the orchard when they are at peak ripeness but most of us have to source our plums from our local market. Don't evenbother withany plums that have a wrinkled skin. Don't shy away from plums that have that chalky, white powder on their on their skin. It's called the bloom. The presence of bloom on a plum is a good sign that it hasn't been handled a lot on its way to the store from the orchard. A plum should smell sweetly fruity. It should not be overly soft to the touch but be firm, not hard, and have just a little give when gently squeezed.

How to store your plums for you Plum Muffins

When you get the plumshome wash them gently in lukewarm water. If not yet ripe, they can be left at room temperature until they ripen.To hasten the ripening process you can place them in a paper bag for a couple of days. When they reach your desired level of ripeness, the plumscan be stored in the refrigerator in a plastic bag where they will keep for up to a week. No fruit or vegetable is the same after being refrigerated but it is better than having them gosoft and mushy on you.

  • Author: From The Wilderness Wife's Family Files
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 25 mins
  • Total Time: 35 mins
  • Category: Quick Bread
  • Cuisine: American, New England



  • 2 ¼ cups flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup red plum, coarsely chopped


  1. Preheat your oven to 425 F.
  2. Grease a 12 cup muffin pan or line with paper liners.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, except for 1 tbs., sugar, baking powder and salt and mix thoroughly.
  4. Combine milk, egg, melted butter, and almond extract in a separate bowl and whisk together.
  5. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix till batter comes together. Be careful not to overmix.
  6. Dust the plum pieces with the remaining flour (this will help keep the plums from sinking to the bottom of the muffins and more evenly distribute them in the flour) and then gently combine into batter.
  7. Spoon the batter into the muffin tin and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
  8. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then remove from muffin pan. Finish cooling on rack.

    I'll try this one again. Sorry if it turns out to be a duplicate.

    Thanks for coming over with a comment, Cheryl, I really appreciate it! I know, I've been canning for years too, and years before that with my mom at home, but never heard or thought of doing grapes. It's the easiest canning I've ever done, that's for sure. Excited to be able to share it!



    • Natalia @PrepUtilityVehicle says

      Hmmm, now it worked. I removed a link. But I can see by another comment above with three links that shouldn't be a problem. Maybe there's a glitch you would like to know about? Thank you again for hosting this and I love your blog!



  7. Natalia @PrepUtilityVehicle says

    Cheryl, I just left a comment but it didn't show up, nor say it was waiting for moderation. I was sure I'd commented here before too, but it isn't here, so I just don't know where they are disappearing to!
