Seared Plums

Seared fruits are simple, healthful accompaniments to roasted meats; use slightly overripe fruit.

  • Servings: 4


  • 4 plums, cut into 1/2-inch wedges
  • 6 sprigs of thyme
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

  2. In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients and set aside for 10 minutes.

  3. Heat a nonstick ovenproof skillet over medium heat, add the plum mixture, and cook 30 seconds to 1 minute, until the surface of the plums are seared and caramel-colored.

  4. Transfer the plums to the oven and bake for about 10 minutes, or until the plum skins are just beginning to break and the color is vibrant.
