What, no plums?

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!
