Don’t you hate it when you see plums at the grocery store and buy a whole bunch because you think you’re going to eat them all then you take them home and they sit and sit and you eat maybe 2 and then feel guilty throwing the rest away? Yeah, me too. Which is why I’ve been keeping my eye out for recipes incorporating plums. Today I have a recipe for stewed plums to share. They are delicious. My girls gobbled this plum sauce up. In fact, I’m pretty sure the pancakes that the stewed plums were served with were completely ignored. And my girls like pancakes.
Speaking of pancakes…I have a cool Austrian recipe I’m going to share with you soon. It will go perfect with your stewed plums.
AND, speaking of recipes using plums…one of my lovely readers named Jenny shared a plum barbecue sauce recipe with me that I can’t WAIT to try. Once I do, I’ll for sure share the results with you.
In case you are wondering…stewed plums are great with breakfast foods and I’m thinking they would be pretty tasty with yogurt or ice cream, too!
- 3/4 cup sugar (a little more if plums are tart)
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 pounds damson plums, pitted and roughly chopped
Combine sugar and water in small/medium sized sauce pan. Boil for 3 minutes, until thick. Add plums; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer stewed plums for about 10 minutes, or until plums are tender.
