Stewed Plums & Yogurt

Three gray, rainy, cold days in a row demand action.

Stewed Plums

I brought eight, halved and pitted, red plums combined with couple of tablespoons of water to a boil, then reduced the heat and stirred gently. When the plums became a lumpy, brilliant magenta sauce, I turned off the heat and added sugar to taste. Plums vary in sweetness, this batch needed nearly three tablespoons of sugar.

A bowl of yogurt topped with a generous serving of the still warm plums. Gorgeous, a blues-chasing breakfast.

a note about the painting -The original is twenty three inches square with one of my signature painted borders. This watercolor painting was licensed for use on dessert plates by a dinnerware manufacturer.

    Thank you for the recipe, especially since I had no idea how to cook plums.
    I love your art work, the plums and the pear, so lovely.

      I often “stew” any stone fruit – peaches, plums, nectarines – f it is not ripe when I want to eat it. I cut it up, sometimes peel it, add a wee bit of liquid, water or oj, a bit of honey or sugar, a squeeze of lemon or lime juice, and then simmer, makes a great topper for yogurt, pancakes, ice cream, also wonderful by itself. Fruit combos also work.
