My boys are very happy in finding and picking cherry plums. In summer, you can find all colours of these little plums in our fridge. In winter, we love pankes with this delicious jam. Our pantry is always full. Last 50 days of home office and school drained jam supplies. But! Spring sun is shining, cherry plums are blooming and we are looking forward picking plums!
The lead role in this recipe is that of Ljutenitsa. It is likely to be found in the pantry throughout the year. Ljutenitsa is one of my favourite things in the Universe.
It's a bit like salsa made with tomatoes, baked red peppers, aubergines (optional), sunflower oil and spices, cooked on the stove or over open fire in the backyard.
My grandmother, Anna, emigrated to NY from Russia in the early 1900’s.
She lived in a four-story walk up, in the Bronx. She always wore a white apron when she cooked. Grandma liked to wear simple dresses and costume jewlery. Her little white stove always had a pot on every burner. She made traditional chicken soup; borscht (A Russian beet soup); mushroom barley, and split pea soup. She cooked the split pea soup with marrowbones for extra flavor. It was a thick delicious soup, great to have on a cold day. Grandma always accompanied the soup with a few slices of rye or pumpernickel bread ad butter. I am sorry that she is not here to sample my vegetarian version.
