It's Friday! You deserve dessert :)

After a long week, enjoy dessert after dinner tonight. My recipe for "Roasted Plums" are a guilt-free indulgence.

Check out p. 107 of Mixing Bowl Magazine.

Roasted Plums

Fresh plums (count 1 plum per serving)
Purchased frozen lemon sorbet
Chopped fresh mint

Halve plums and remove pits. Place plums in a shallow baking pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes or until tender. Place plums in serving bowls with scoops of lemon sorbet and sprinkle with chopped mint leaves. Serve immediately.


The best time to buy a great plum is when it's in season, usually between July and September. Look for plums with unwrinkled skin and a blemish-free complexion. Squeeze gently. If the plum gives slightly, it is sweet and ripe. The frosty sheen on plums is normal - don't try to wash it off.
