I am dreading the moment this season when the stone fruits disappear from the farmers markets.
Luckily, as I was looking for a new plum recipe to use the plums I bought at Sunday’s market, I came across Marian Burros’ classic plum torte recipe. What a find!
To make matters even better, the plum torte recipe comes with a wonderful backstory.
Burros, a food columnist for the NY Times, published this recipe in the food section of that paper in 1982. The recipe was so well-received by Times readers that its publication became a food section tradition every plum season for many years.
I’m thinking this would be wonderful with a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream. No…wait!…everything goes well with a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream.
The recipe for this classic appears below.
