Nutritional values

Plums and red wine provide plenty of secondary plant substances that provide the beautiful colour. Experts believe that they prevent some cancers and that they strengthen the heart, circulation and immune system.

When buying plums, look for shiny, firm fruits; greenish ones are better left out, as they ripen only slightly and are less sweet.
