Marj's Plum Pie with Whidbey Island or Kaua'i Koke'e Plums
|Marj's Plum Pie by Farmer Bob, served with Whidbey Island Ice Cream.|
We've known Marj for more than three decades, as she lived in Langley on Whidbey Island for many years before moving to the Hawaiian Islands. And Marj has been making her plum pie for about the same amount of time. In Langley, she had a wonderful red plum tree in her back yard that bore fruit with sour skins and sweet flesh.
These days, Marj makes her plum pies with Koke'e plums, which she says grow on "sort of wild" trees. And like her plums back in Langley, they have tart skin and sweet flesh. She also wanted Farmer Bob to know that it would take less time than the plum tart he made, as there's no arranging of the slices. Mahalo, Marj!
