This was demolished at our house. It was fun to make (had to substitute allspice for the mace), and it was a great way to use the too-many plums I'd bought. I like this recipe better than some other plum tarts because it uses so many plums you get plum flavor, instead of the usual sugar taste. All the skinnys in the fam enjoyed it with lots of lightly sweetened whipped cream. Thanks Julesong for a terrific post.
I have a plum tree, and therefore was very keen to find a recipie using plums. I luckily found this, it is lovely. We have been sitting in the garden around a lit fire, and my friends have all had a slice of this, they thought it was wonderful, not too sweet, but very tasty. I am keeping this for sure. Thanks for posting it.
