Roasted Plums


From EatingWell:  The EatingWell Diet (2007), The EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry Cookbook (2006)

Roasting gives the plums a caramelized flavor and lemon, sugar and brandy enhance the inherently sweet and sour aspect of the fruit.

4 servings | Active Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes



  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Place plum halves skin-side down in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with sugar and lemon juice; bake until the juices are thickened and the plums are tender, shaking pan occasionally to distribute juices, 30 to 40 minutes. Stir in brandy and lemon zest.
