This is a very simple sauce. Its slightly sharp taste works well with pancakes, ice cream, mixed into plain yoghurt and even with Swedish meatballs.


Making and cooking it
  1. Chop the plums into small pieces, removing any stalks or stones
  2. Put the plums and sugar into the pan 
  3. Warm on a low heat until the sugar has dissolved then simmer until the fruit is soft. There will be less liquid in the pan (it will have reduced)
  4. Allow to cool a little and then taste, as you may need to add a little more sugar if the plums are very sharp 
  5. Serve warm or cold
  6. This keeps well, covered in the fridge for a few days
