Also asked, do you peel plums for pie?
Wash plums, do not peel. Cut plums in half remove pit, then into quarters. Arrange plums in the pie crust.
How do you process plums?
There's no fancy prep: just wash them and remove any stems or leaves. Pop them in a 400° oven for 20-40 minutes, until the skins start to brown and your whole kitchen smells too delicious to bear. Very important: use a baking sheet with edges, or a baking pan. If you don't, you'll have plum juice all over your oven.
