Tips for Roasted Plums
- Any Plum variety will do. Choose your favorite ripe plums.
- Wash the skins, slice in half and remove pits.
- When you slice your plums, place knife halfway through until you reach the pit. Twist the plum in a circle, to cut evenly around the plum towards the pit. Then gently grab both halves with your hands and twist each half in the opposite direction. The halves should separate into two equal portions. Take a spoon and pop out the pit.
- Use a casserole dish or deep baking tray.
- Place sliced side up and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon.
- You can add nutmeg or pumpkin spice as well!
- Drizzle with honey and bake!
- If your a maple syrup fan, use it in place of honey.
- Bake on the bottom shelf to prevent burning.
- Plums are ready when their skin begins to wilt and darken around the edges.
- Serve with greek yogurt, a sprinkle of your favorite nuts and drizzle with extra honey!
