Sweet Stewed Plums

sweet stewed plums
Sweet Stewed Plums are so very easy to make. Sometimes we (including me!) just need reminding of how simple it is to create a different taste simply by stewing them. From August through to October plums are in season and this is the best time to eat them. They are delicious lightly cooked as the cooking brings out the sweetness – definitely no sugar required!

Makes 3-4 portions

  • 6 good sized plums
  • 100 ml water

You can cook the plums with the stones–or without. If you don’t mind the stones, skip this paragraph. If you prefer to remove the stones, take a  knife and cut each plum all the way around vertically so the knife touches the stone but the plum stays intact. Now do the same, cutting the plum horizontally. Twist the two halves of the plum in different directions and the nut will almost drop out out for you and you will have 8 pieces of cut plum.

Place plum pieces (or whole plums) into saucepan with the water.

Bring to boil then turn heat down. Simmer for around 10 minutes or until some of the plums have started to disintegrate – yet there are still some firm pieces in there too. Remove from heat and it’s ready to serve. Delicious hot of cold with a dollop of natural, bio yoghurt.

Eat Well. Be Well 🙂
