Damson/Quetschen season is really such a lovely time. You will find damsons in shops around Luxembourg from early August, but the real damson season actually only starts in October, when the old regional damson varieties get ripe.
There are so many lovely Quetschen recipes out there – like my take on the classic Quetschentaart or my upside-down damson cake, which is very popular. For this recipe, I’m making handy muffins – it’s really such a simple recipe, and you can also make it with other fruit, like apples, pears, blueberries or mirabelles. A good one to have up your sleeve!
