Someone has just dropped these off for me to use, possibly chutney. Sweet and about the size of a 20p piece. They came from an old garden so could be anything. I was told they were yellow damsons but they don't taste like a damson and not the same shape. 
Anyone any idea what they are please?

    Possibly Mirabelle plums.

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.

    Well done both and thank you. I knew I could rely on someone. I reckon I shall be busy making chutney tomorrow.

    We have inherited Mirabelle plums here.  Far too sweet and bland for my taste so I leave them for the birds but OH occasionally gathers a few.
