Shiro Plums

Shiro Plums
(Shiro Plums) Shiro plums when ripe are a golden yellow semi-sweet tasting plum that are about an inch (2.5 cm.) in diameter. Shiro plums are often referred to as being Japanese plums, but we have learned that the plum originally came from China, and that Luther Burbank is credited with developing the shiro plum in California, which was first introduced to the public in 1899. These are an early ripening plum that we purchased at a farm market in mid-August. We have not found them in any supermarket and could find little about their specific nutritional value other than that they contain vitamin A, potassium, and fiber. We could not find any specific nutritional information for shiro plums.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
