Gorgeous Plums--You Can Do More Than Just Eat Them Plain!

A-Meen-O-Mum (I Want a Plum!)

Written by Gayle

That's what one of my toddlers said when he wanted to have a plum.  Plums have long been a favorite at our house.  I like the varieties with tart skins and sweet flesh the most.  Peter likes the black plums best. But whatever the variety, when they are in season I always have some in my shopping cart.

Recently I was looking for something easy to do with the bag of glorious organic plums that I'd brought home from Lassen's, and found this recipe.  I made them, with my own changes, for dinner last night, as an accompaniment to baked chicken and roasted red potatoes (along with this recipe for kale and quinoa salad).  They got rave reviews!

roasted+plums
Yes.  The spiced plum syrup that was bubbling in the pan was SO delicious that we cracked open the vanilla ice cream and spooned some of the syrup on top.  

It. Was. Fab.

I will definitely make this recipe many many times!  It would be great made with pluots, peaches, cherries, or apricots!  Or a blend of fruits--yum!

Enjoy the rest of the stone fruit season!
