Lowfat recipes with purèed plums

We have a giant crop from our plum trees each year. They are excellent for eating, preserving or baking. We made a plum barbeque sauce that is great on meat for something different, as well as plum jelly, preserves and a plum-sauce chocolate chip cake. Purèed plums can be substituted for oil in baking recipes to reduce the fat. Replace half of the oil or butter the recipe calls for with the plum purèe.

We have also seated two final raised beds in the backyard and filled the remaining beds with a our usual mixture of manure, vermiculite and peat moss. That means we have completed the beds and we are ready for planting next year!
