really liked this-served it with mascapone with some grated lemon rind, lemon juice and some icing sugar-so lovely, really light and refreshing. We didnt have any cinnamon sticks in so used cinnamon powder which worked ok too

THESE ARE AWESOME. Sooo easy...sooo yummy. I only had 6 plums thinking that would be enough for the 3 of us. WRONG!!! The flavors are fabulous - not too sweet, not too spicy. This will be made repeatedly! ETA that peaches work very well with this recipe!! And it's great that dessert cooks while you're eating dinner!
