I bought some plums the other day, and realised that they were starting to get a bit ripe. Worried I wouldn’t be able to eat them before they went off, I decided that I would have a go at stewing them!
And they were bloody good!
So for the ultimate sweet indulgence, try these! You can eat them on their own, on top of a meringue nest (as I did, pictures below!) or stirred through with custard or rice pudding.
Half a cup of water
Splash of lemon juice
Splash of white or red wine
- Add the sugar and water to a pan, and bring to the boil for a couple of minutes
- Stone the plums and chop in half
- Add the plums to the pan, and add the lemon juice and wine
- Simmer for 15-20 minutes on a very low heat, stirring occasionally.
The plums should be mushy and soft, and it will be deliciously sweet and syrupy, yum!
