You’re Not Going to Believe What These Plums Can Do

These are Queen Garnet plums. I tasted them on a recent trip interstate. They were $5 a kilo and mild tasting.

Tests have shown high levels of an antioxidant called Anthocyanin(also found in other purple foods like purple carrots and blueberries), known to prevent and treat a range of health problems including obesity and related diseases, such as diabetes.

She can be a bit Polyanna-ish.  She shops for fresh vege, restocks at the Health food store with a basket over her arm. Maybe she skips. Read More
