12 recipes with plums and Mirabelle plums

Plum season has arrived! If your trees are crumbling under their fruit and don’t know what to do with them, here are some recipe ideas so you don’t miss any. And as a bonus, recipes with mirabelle plums for the end of summer.

At this time of year, the plums finally arrive on the markets and make their appearance in the gardens. But plums are fruits that ripen quickly and spoil just as quickly. So to avoid letting them rot, or seeing them devoured by birds, here are some simple and delicious recipe ideas for using them.

What are the nutritional benefits of plums?

First, know that it is recognized for its laxative capacities… To be consumed in moderation, therefore! The riper the fruit, the less it will have this property. The plum is also very moisturizing, and it is low in calories: 100 grams of fruit correspond to 48.7 calories.

It is rich in vitamin C, vitamin B9 (folic acid which helps regenerate cells), but also in various minerals. It includes potassium (149mg per 100 grams of plums), calcium, magnesium and phosphorus.

Don’t miss the short mirabelle plum season

There are many varieties of plums: quetsches, plum d’Ente, greengage plums, early plums… But we have to admit that the mirabelle plum from Lorraine is the queen of them. Between mid-August and the end of September, Mirabelle plums from Lorraine tumble onto the stalls. These small suns with an orange-yellow complexion traditionally ripen in the north-east of France.

That of Nancy, the most generous, blushes slightly in the sun and has a clear flesh. Its little sister from Metz reveals a flesh with a more sustained tone. Both are packed with beta carotene. Perfect for maintaining our tanned complexion when we return from vacation! We savor them like candies… As a bonus, their soft fibers (2.3 g per 100 g) help us maintain a bikini belly. Fragile, Mirabelle plums wait one to two days maximum in the compote (in a cool room) and no more than 4 to 5 days in the vegetable drawer of the refrigerator. To prolong their season, they are frozen in mumps, flat, and enclosed in individual sachets. Enough to brighten up our recipes until the end of the year!
