My friend dropped off some plums from the garden market. This is just what I was waiting for. I had a taste to make my recipe, "BLUEBERRY COBBLER" on JAP, but using plums instead. Actually using any fruit or berries would work very well. This recipe is different than most cobblers, hope you will give it a try, I am sure you will love this version. My friends say from 1 to 10 it is a 10 plus! Luv them gals. What do you think? Now back to painting the wall. Nancy. 9/14/13
