Italian Prune Plums

I love Italian prune plums.  First tasted them last season, almost by accident, and now I'm hooked.  They are great travel fruit becasue they aren't so juicy they are drippy or sticky, and you can easily pull the pit out. For these same reasons, I have read they make great fruit desserts, like clafouti or this recipe I want to try  becasue they don't have too much water.

They are great cut up over cereal (or home made granola), or eaten out of hand. Next year I will definitely make a dessert/tart/crisp with them.  And this year I couldn't help but freeze a bunch (see photo) for using later, and trying in smoothies!
