Sugar-Roasted Plums

Source: Everyday Food, September 2009

Ingredients

  • 4 plums, halved and pitted
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 3 tablespoons light-brown sugar
  • 6 strips orange zest (1/2 by 3 inches each), plus 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • Coarse salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Arrange plums, cut side down, in a medium ovenproof skillet or baking dish. Sprinkle butter, sugar, orange zest, and pinch of salt over plums. Roast until very tender but still intact, 40 to 45 minutes. Pour orange juice over top; swirl to incorporate. Serve warm.

Cook's Note

If your plums are very ripe, the cooking time will be shorter.
