I took my friend’s market share this week while she’s away, and wondered what to do with the two smallest plums I have ever seen in my life (see picture). When I got home they had become mushy, so I decided to make a jam with them. I also used a peach (well, they told me it was a peach, but it looks suspiciously like a nectarine…) that had gone mealy–my least favorite thing about fruit. I had to put the jam on something, so I made some gluten-free oatcakes, too. I had everything this morning for breakfast. Yay breakfast!

I am really, truly bad at baking. I don’t like to follow instructions. But this is the easiest dessert ever, and it’s both gluten-free (if you want it to be) and fracking delicious!
