Canned Purple Plums are U.S. Grade B or better, whole (unpeeled, unpitted) or halves (unpeeled, pitted).

Plums are packed in unsweetened fruit juice, light syrup, lightly sweetened fruit juice and water, or lightly sweetened fruit juice.


Unopened Canned Plums[edit]

Store unopened cans in a cool, dry place off the floor, or in refrigerated storage.

Avoid freezing or sudden changes in temperature. Temperature changes shorten shelf life and speed deterioration of the plums.

Opened Canned Plums[edit]

Store opened canned plums in a covered nonmetallic container and refrigerate. Use within 2 to 4 days.

Uses & Tips[edit]

  • Canned plums are a delicious dessert served chilled directly from the can, with

juice or drained. They are also a wonderful addition to any fruit salad or dessert recipe.

  • Lemon juice intensifies the natural flavor of the fruit; spices or almond extract complement its natural flavor.
  • Chopped purple plums can be added to muffins or used in place of raisins in cinnamon rolls.
  • Serve drained and heated or at room temperature as an accompaniment to

meat dishes.
