I just love summer stonefruit. It's rich in vitamins A, C and E, is a great source of dietary fibre and postassium. We're so fortunate in Australia to have our stonefruit season stretch for six months from October to April because of the extremes of climate from north-to-south.

At the moment, the plums are especially delicious so I thought I'd share with your this VERY quick and very delicious Chinese stir-fry recipe incorporating my favourite fruit of the moment! Plums come in all shapes, sizes, colour and tastes. I generally like full-coloured ones that become a little dull just before they're ready to eat. They taste good in so many things and I think you'll really enjoy this recipe.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 5 minutes

Serves: 4


6 plums, halved and stone removed

250g beef strips

3 cloves garlic, crushed

3 centimetre ginger, grated

2 bunches bok choy

1 tablespoon oil

1 tablespoon soy sauce

¼ cup plum sauce


1.  Heat oil in wok or frying pan over high heat. Cook beef until well browned on both sides.

2.  Add garlic, ginger and bok choy. Stir fry until bok choy is just cooked, adding soy sauce when require.

3.  Add plums and plum sauce, and gently stir until plums are warmed through.

4.  Serve immediately with noodles or rice.
