  • 750g firm plum (mixed varieties if you can get them)



    The juiciest fruit in the stone fruit family, plums come in many different varieties, some sweet…

  • 140g clear honey
  • 4 tbsp orange blossom water
  • 300ml orange juice
  • biscuits and Greek yogurt (or frozen yogurt), to serve


  1. Put the plums in a pan with just enough water to cover them, then pour over the honey, orange blossom water and juice. Bring to a simmer, then cover and cook for 15 mins until the plums are tender through to the stone, but not mushy.

  2. Using a slotted spoon, lift out the plums to a serving dish. Bring the liquid back to the boil and simmer to a thin syrup. Pour over the plums and leave to cool. (You can peel the plums to serve, if you like a posher finish.)

  3. Serve with crunchy biscuits like our Honey-bread biscuits (see 'Goes well with'), and Greek or frozen yogurt.
