    Our plum tree is exploding plums, so we made some really good plum chutney. Now Im trying to think of what to do with it.

    I was thinking chicken breasts stuffed with goat cheese and dried cranberries.

    Or just putting it on some sort of white fish.

    Any other suggestions?

    I was debating on repeating the old carpenter joke, "Is it plum, Bob?"

    My advice is don't let Bud try and convince you he's a chef.

    brown up some chicken thighs on the bone and braise them with the chutney or slow cook in a crock pot (add some coconut milk if you want it creamy)

    Update: I didn't have a lot of time to shop or cook last night, so I made quesadillas with Goat cheese, peppers, and artichokes, and served it with warm chutney. Made some coffee cake for desert.

    I have some left, so I will get a little more creative next time.

    Dehydrate some. Prunes are good.
