    Chef #848413's Note:

    "Red Beaut Plums" have a bright red skin and are mildly sweet. The poaching liquid is made from a wonderful "Nebbia Orange Muscat 2006 Wine" that came from the La Nebbia Winery, Half Moon Bay, Ca.. These plums are infused with a wonderful sweetness form the "Muscat Wine".
