I’m convinced that the problem was the plums. If they aren’t good raw, they won’t be that much better cooked. I had a similiar problem when I put them in a cake!

The plums that drive me mad are those little yellow ones the size of cherries. They’re called Mirabelles and are abundant in Alsace/Lorraine during July and August. I think if those were ever cultivated in Hawaii, they’d be the talk of the town and put Kauai’s Kokee plums to shame!

P.S. I was hoping you’d post your celebrity matches!

ACH! No way am I posting my matches! And thank you for the advice on the plums. I think this year I’ll try the tart again, only I’ll get the plums from the local farmer’s market. They are actually pretty hard to find in this area.

I am sorry this tart was not what you had hoped. However, I am a new visitor to your blog and am eager to come back to visit. Thanks!
