My favorite way to cook plums is to roast them. I prefer roasted plums to eating them raw because they have a deeper flavor. During this time of year, when plums are so plentiful, I always have a container of roasted plums handy. You can eat them plain, with yogurt, with oatmeal or with ice cream.
Slice the plums
Add juice of one lemon
Sprinkle with nutmeg
Add sugar or agave nectar (optional)
Roast for 20-30 minutes at 350 degrees
Let cool and enjoy.
The Wall Street journal had an article A Plum Assignment in the September 1st weekend edition. Gail Monaghan suggests caramelizing plums. She includes a recipe for a Caramelized Plum, Rosemary and Polenta Pound Cake. The combination of the plums and rosemary sound interesting. I will try it out and let you know if it is a keeper.
Have a great week. X
