In one of the corners of our garden in Germany we had a Mirabelle Plum tree which produced many fruits every year. So much that neighbours were given free access and could pick up as much as they desired. And they did. What was left was frozen for future use.
The new owners do it slightly differently to everyone’s delight. They actually produce a Mirabelle liquor from the fruits. Imagine our surprise when we received a bottle last Christmas. Weird to think that I planted that tree myself many moons ago. I have of course tasted it in the meantime and it is not bad.
