Plums contain a wealth of antioxidant anthocyanins, vitamins, and minerals. They are also a delicious source of fiber and may help balance glucose metabolism, enhance bone health, lower the risk of heart disease, and even prevent cancer.
This week’s recipe combines the sweetness of plums with the earthy richness of rye flour in Black Plum and Rye Crumb Bars. It was sent to CCSA as part of a series of emails from our resident chef, Dr. Linda Doody. She has been sharing her extensive collection of favorite recipes with friends, family, and the CCSA team as a means of maintaining connections during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Live in each season as it passes: breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit.”
