Loquats in dessert?

So here's the thing: me and my mom are starting to come across tress that produce succulent and juicy Japanese plums, aka loquats. I really wanna make them into a yummy dessert soon, other than just making it into preservatives. Any ideas on what to make with these yum plums?

I'd be interested to know what part of the country you're in- never heard the term "Japanese Plums"- perhaps because plums are widely grown here, and they fall into two groups known as European and Japanese plums. I'm not sur where loquats come from- probably the orient- but in Northern California, anyway, they are mostly grown by Portuguese immigrants and their descendants. We never cooked with them- just ate them straight off the tree.
