Thanks for the EP honor! I so wish I weren't back on the road again traveling this week. The recipes for testing look phenomenal!
SallyCan August 12, 2010
Though the Summer Plum Pudding is intriguing, I'm always interested in trying a new pie crust, so I'll try the Caramelized Plum Ravioli. If no one else wants to try the Summer Plum Pudding, I'd be happy to try that too.
adamnsvetcooking August 12, 2010
Anything left?
Food52 August 12, 2010
Yes, the Summer Plum Pudding and the Caramelized Plum Ravioli are still up for grabs.
adamnsvetcooking August 13, 2010
I'll take the summer plum pudding! ;)
Lizthechef August 12, 2010
I'd like to try the Sugar Plum Sherbet, if that's OK with Antonia.
AntoniaJames August 12, 2010
Sure, please do! ;o)
Lizthechef August 12, 2010
Thank you, AJ.
AppleAnnie August 12, 2010
I am eager to test the Stone cold soup. I have already made another of Sagegreen's fruit recipes, and it is terrific!
Sagegreen August 12, 2010
Thanks for selecting this one as an EP candidate. You can make it without the sapa. I am interested in any feedback you can offer.
AntoniaJames August 12, 2010
I'm happy to try a second one . . the Sugar Plum Sherbet, if no one else wants it. ;o)
Food52 August 12, 2010

I'd love to test Tarte aux Quetsches (Italian Plum Tart), please.
cheese1227 August 12, 2010
I don't think anyone's taken the plum ravioli yet either.
Food52 August 12, 2010
Sorry, cheese1227 -- yes, the Caramelized Plum Ravioli is still available for testing!
Food52 August 12, 2010
Five great recipes still available: Sage Infused Plum-Blackberry-Honey-Gelato, Summer Plum Pudding, Stone Cold Soup, Tarte aux Quetches, Sugar Plum Sherbet with Star Anise. Which one do you want to test?
FrozenFoodie August 12, 2010
I'd love to do the Red Wine-Honey Plum Sauce. Thanks!
AppleAnnie August 13, 2010
I forgot to mention in the recipe that it takes several hours of refrigeration for the flavors to come into "focus" --I made it at night, and put it in the fridge.The next morning it was more flavorful than when I tasted it the night before. This is true of so many recipes, flavors "bloom" during a rest.
lapadia August 12, 2010
Bruschetta with plums, serrano ham and ricotta, please!
Amber O. August 12, 2010
Sage infused Plum, Blackberry, Honey Gelato is hopefully mine to test!
gingerroot August 12, 2010
