Plums are at their best in August, which makes now the ideal time to try a selection of plum recipes for your summer get-togethers and garden parties. Colourful, juicy and full of summery sweetness, plums make a great dessert fruit in tarts and puddings, and are surprisingly good in salads too. And of course, a batch of chutney is a tasty way to keep the taste of summer in your cupboards even after the last barbecue has died down.
