“I live in northern Manitoba, where fresh nectarines and plums are usually available only at summer’s end,” writes Darlene Jackson from The Pas, Manitoba. “So I make up the fruit filling and freeze it for use all winter. My family really enjoys this recipe and it’s wonderful topped with vanilla ice cream.”
