Use this recipe when making our Chestnut and Almond Pancakes with Sauteed Plums.
In a medium saucepan, warm butter over medium-high heat until it begins to brown, about 3 minutes. Add vanilla and cardamom, then remove from heat and stir. Let stand 10 minutes.
Add sliced plums, maple syrup, and salt, and cook over medium heat until juicy, about 3 minutes.
Bartlett or Anjou pears can be substituted for the plums here.
