Chile con carne, peas and rice. For afters; victoria plums bottled last August. Last year was a bad year for plums. Frost and a cold spring meant that there were hardly any plums on my trees. So these were plums that I bought and them bottled. The man at the fruit farm where we bought the plums said that the poor harvest was due to wet weather damaging the finer rootlets of the tree, so preventing the fruit setting.
