    Cookgirl's Note:

    From Delicious Living magazine. "A little ginger and honey make cooked plums even more delectable. In about two minutes they start to release their juices, and as they sit, they’ll release even more, creating fruit compote. There’s no need to limit your fruit to plums; you could slice in a peach or nectarine that’s a little on the firm side, or add a handful of berries at the end, or pitted cherries. I like these plums just as they are, but also with a spoonful of coffee or vanilla ice cream and a topping of toasted sliced almonds." I reduced the yield and used one black plum and one pluot with the test recipe. Also, I didn't have time to make ice cream or even whipped cream and with our servings lightly drizzled a small amount of heavy cream over the fruit. Next time I'll try a dollop of Greek yogurt!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 6 large plums, in season
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
    • 2 tablespoons orange blossom honey (I used local honey and added 1 teaspoon of orange blossom water) or 2 tablespoons honey and 1 teaspoon orange blossom water (I used local honey and added 1 teaspoon of orange blossom water)
    • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger (reduced from 1 tablespoon because I wanted a subtle ginger taste)
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom (switched from ground ginger)


    1. 1
      Rinse plums and slice into wedges about ¾-inch thick at their widest part.
    2. 2
      In a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter with *honey, grated ginger and ground cardamom. *Note: If using orange blossom water, stir it in at the end when you remove the pan from the burner.
    3. 3
      When the mixture is saucy, add plums.
    4. 4
      Increase heat and cook, moving fruit around pan about every 20 seconds so that cut surfaces take on some color and juices begin to flow, 2–3 minutes.
    5. 5
      Stop cooking when juice just coats fruit.
    6. 6
      Remove from heat and transfer to a serving bowl, scraping in all pan liquid.
    7. 7
      Serve warm or cool.

      Heavenly!! This is so fast & easy. Absolutely delicious!! We had it over ice cream. I finished the little bit that was left for breakfast. This would also be good on hot breakfast cereals. Made for NA/ME Tag 9/12.
