I just checked back to the tsimmes thread at the beginning of November, and found your reply to my post. That is a wonderful recipe. I'd love to find a source of those sour plums. I wonder if Russ and Daughters has a website. And I guess I want to find out about your source for that recipe, the Food Maven Diary. Pending your reply, I'll google it.
If you have any other insider info. about Jewish cooking I'd love to share tips/recipes with you.
