"We have trees in AZ that are sometimes called "Mock Plum" trees with teeny, tart, cherry-sized plums. They're edible, but no one usually eats them because they're a bit too sour. But the plum flavor is nice, so I'm going to make this pie tomorrow to see if we can make use of these little fruits. Looks like a wonderful recipe."
