Mirabelles en Lorraine/ Season of mirabelles 2011


The symbol of Lorraine in France is a tiny aromatic fruit: la mirabelle. They are kind of plums from which the local make brandy, jams or very delicous cakes...The fruit is very yummy and I enjoyed collecting some mirabelles myself last weekend.


Almost at the same time another fruit, the blue plum is also getting ripe-this one is also used for desserts and tarts.
