Plums (Italian Prunes)
A wonderful lady in my church let me pick plums from her tree. My parents had the same type of plum tree in our backyard growing up. I was so excited to be able to have a little bit of my childhood back :)
I picked a 5 gal bucket with the help of the kids.
I washed them in cool water.
I cut them in half and removed the pit.
I gave them a quick dip in a lemon juice/water bath to help prevent browning.
Then I laid them all pretty like in my dehydrator.
With the dehydrator set on 135 degrees and roughly 10 hours later
