Over 30 plum varieties will make up the
biggest plum harvest for many years and
is better celebrated at the Pershore Plum
Festival (running from 27th July through
to the end of August) in Worcestershire.
For the month Pershore turns purple as
a tribute to the plums named after the
historic market town. Plum products
abound among the town's retailers from
plum soaps, sweets, pizzas, sausages,
pies, cocktails, beer, jam, chutney, cakes,
Wellington boots, plum baked ham,
burgers and pate. An average plum is
50-70g and worth about 5g of carbs and
20 cals, negligible fat and they are low GI,
releasing any sugars slowly. So dig in!
