Ingredients
  • 450g plums, halved and stoned
  • 1 vanilla pod (or use 1/4 tsp Extra Special Vanilla Bean Extract)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 200ml apple juice
  • 2 tbsp clear honey
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Put the plums in in an ovenproof dish, skin-side down.

  • Make a cut all along the vanilla pod so the tiny black seeds are exposed. Add the pod or vanilla bean extract to the dish of plums, along with the cinnamon stick.

  • Mix the apple juice with the honey and pour over. Cover the dish with a lid or foil and bake for 15-25 minutes or until the plums are tender but still retain their shape. The cooking time will depend on how ripe they are, so check after 15 minutes.
