Plums in Portugal

By Linda Tancs

A plum job takes on new meaning in Elvas, Portugal, site of a 100-year-old plum-processing factory. Still operating today, the facility is faithful to the age-old recipe for the region’s famous ameixas d’Elvas (preserved plums). There’s a museum on the premises, where visitors can observe the manufacturing process and learn about the city’s long history of plum production. Of course, the factory (formerly Frutas Doces and now known as Sereno & Fonseca) has goodies for sale in the gift shop.
