Thank you, quite to the point. I am new to this so you will need to
excuse my stupid questions - I guess for me it's a good way to learn.
The recipe sounds great and I would love to try it, but as my Lady
does not eat plums, wouldn't want to end up with a lot of stuff I
would have to eat. Do you know yet what the yield is for this?
