Plum Bruschetta

Holiday Red Plums are crisp, juicy, and extremely sweet. The unique flavor and crunch of Holiday Plums are reminiscent of an apple, but without losing any of their plum-y goodness. They are only available between August and mid-October, so we get very excited when they hit grocery stores! They’re a treat we look forward to all year long! While Holiday Plums are perfectly delicious to consume as a hand-held fruit, we think this special fruit deserves a special recipe! Holiday Plum Bruschetta is as unique as the fruit itself. It’s the perfect mix of sweet and savory. We love serving it at dinner parties…
