Breakfast of Kings: stewed plums

stewed plums

Hooray for plum season!
My mum very kindly brought me a haul this weekend. I had to do something with them fairly quickly, so decided that stewing was the best option. It makes for a super breakfast.

Lots of plums (1kg)
Half a mug of water
2-3 tablespoons of sugar (to taste)
1 tbsp cinnamon

1. Wash, stone and slice the plums.
2. Put the sliced plums, water, sugar and cinnamon in a pan.Put on the lid, and stew very slowly over a gently heat, stirring occasionally.
3. Store in a covered bowl in the fridge, and serve with yoghurt, porridge or sweet rice. Yum.

    They look beautiful.
    My favourite for plums is crumble, with a bit of nutmeg and some hazelnuts in the topping. Serve with organic plum yoghurt… could have that for breakfast too, if you cut down on the sugar…. why not?
