A Fall Harvest


Good Afternoon! It‚Äôs hard to believe that Fall is just a few days away, but the frost on the pumpkin this morning proved it’s timing is just right. Trees are starting to show their fall colors, pumpkins in the fields are bright orange, mums are in full bloom as well as apple trees loaded with ripe fruit just waiting to be picked. Today is the day for us to harvest our plums! This was a great summer for the plum tree and with this harvest comes one of Mary‚Äôs recipes! This recipe can be used for apples as well.

Plum Fruit Torte

¾ cup sugar
¬Ω cup butter
2 eggs
fruit (can be plums or apples)
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 tsp lemon juice
2 tsp of sugar/cinnamon mixed together
Cream butter and sugar well. Add eggs, mix then add sifted flour, baking powder and salt. Pour in a 9” spring form pan. Cover surface with fruit slices. Sprinkle top with lemon juice, sugar and cinnamon.
Bake @ 350°
Serve with a dollop of whip cream an ENJOY!

Have a great day. Be well. Do good.

  1. Thanks for the recipe. I’m going to make it this week with pears. This morning, I made another of Mary’s wonderful recipes: Banana Pancakes. YUMMMMM! I froze a few batches of pancakes for future breakfasts. Today, I enjoyed them with the maple syrup that I bought from Sawyer and Courtney’s Boatique. Keep those items coming, kids. I love the honey, syrup, hand salve, and candles that you offer for sale. 🙂 War, hugs to all.

  3. As hurricane Kyle passes by Maine on its way to Nova Scotia I can’t help but wonder how the schooner is faring and if all the plums were picked before the winds hit.

    As always – wishing everyone the best.
