Damsons - fresh from Pfalzmarkt
This stone fruit has many possible uses. Damsons can be eaten fresh or preserved, and they can be used in cakes as well as warm spicy dishes in combination with meat.
Damsons keep for several days in the fridge. However, they should be stored unwashed as washing removes the protective layer that helps to preserve them.
