Anyone ever seen them here? They're typically a fall fruit (atleast in the midwest). I've looked for the last 3 years in the fall at publix but never saw them. Asked the produce guy and he looked like I grew a 3rd eye asking if he knew if they'd stock italian plums. Anyone know what they are and perhaps where I can find them locally this fall? Google failed me My family recipe specifically calls for italian plums only and I really am not looking to make substitutes (i'd rather not have it if its not the right plum).

I would check with a local food co-op.

If you ever them, please post the information here. I been looking for them for a long time.

You might also look for Italian Prunes, it is another name they sometimes go by.

Is your recipe by any chance Zwetchgenknödel? I love those little pockets of goodness.

Yes I had lost my grandmother's recipe (the ONLY copy that I knew of - she never wrote it down except once). Come to find out my stepmother, that i dont speak to, still has it. My father passed away so he was the only other one who knew it, so all hope was lost. I ended up reaching out to my stepmother and she found my father's copy and emailed it to me. Now its saved on about 5 devices

Since the plums are only in season a short time, we usually made a batch of about 50-75 and froze half, then ate the other half for dinner for a few days
