- 8 plums (roughly 400g)
- 4 bay leaves
- 2 sticks of cinnamon, halved
- 12 juniper berries
- 40g butter (optional)*
- 40g honey
- 2 tbsps water
Truly a celebration of the season, we like to serve these plums with organic yoghurt and local honey for breakfast or a light dessert.
Alternatively, try serving as a delicious accompaniment to lean venison or seasonal game (see HERE for a recipe) – spoon the juices through rich gravy for a little sweetness and colour too.
Pre-heat the oven to 180°C.
Halve the plums and remove the stones.
Transfer to a medium sized pan and add the other ingredients.
Put a lid on the pan and bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until the plums are just soft.
Transfer to a bowl, cover and store in the fridge before warming through when ready to use.
* If you would prefer to omit the butter, simply add a little more water instead.
