Fans of Lincolnshire plum bread will know it contains no plum!. So why is it called that?
We’re told by a baker friend of ours it is the process of re-hydrating (often with tea) the dried raisins & fruits, whilst others say its the actual drying of the fruit, or that “plum” is simply a pre-Victorian name for a raisin.
Whatever it is we think it’s delicious with blue cheese such as a Colston Bassett Stilton or Cote Hill Blue, all of which are available in the BMC Christmas hamper.
Shop local, eat delicious!
