August . Plums
A member of the Rose family, the plum tree is said to represent anticipation of promises and rewards of something you've been waiting for.
Rich in fibre, they provide an important role in feeding the good bacteria and help to keep things regular. Inspired recipes for Plums that I've been loving include:
Plum Marmalade by Green Kitchen Stories
Plum Salsa with roast chicken by Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall (via The Guardian)
A salad of sautéed pears and plums by The Year in Food
