Easy Plum SpreadFrom keni 4 years ago
- about 8 large, juicy, ripe plums, cut in half(I leave the pit AND the skin on, because I like the tartness they lend, but you can remove both, if you'd like) shopping list
- 3T 100% sweet juice(ie grape, white grape, raspberry blend or apple-I used white grape raspberry :) shopping list
- 2t fresh lemon juice shopping list
- 1t vanilla shopping list
- 1/4-1/2 cup honey shopping list
How to make it
- In large dutch oven or similar pan, add juices and then add plums, cut side down.
- Heat over medium heat until boiling then reduce heat to a high simmer for about 30 minutes, pressing often with a large fork or a potato masher to release the plum juices and soften the skin.
- (at this point, remove the pits from the pan and if there are larger pieces of skin. I didn't remove any of the skin, at all. I left it in and it just gave it a slightly rustic texture in the end product. It wasn't chewy or fibrous and there were only very small pieces. I loved the lil hint of tartness it gave, but feel free to remove it if you'd like :)
- Add honey and vanilla and stir well.
- Continue to heat another 10-15 minutes.
- You can test the spread by dipping a COLD spoon in the mixture and lift it up. Run a finger down the back side of the spoon. If the "track" you make, remains, it's done! :)
- Serve on toast, biscuits, waffles, etc.
