Not sure I an actually call this a recipe it's so simple! We have had a glut of very nice plums in our organic vegetable box (from Abel & Cole who I can heartily recommend) in the last few weeks so came up with this to use them up.
6-8 plums cut into quarters and destoned
2 tablespoons of vanilla sugar (I always have a jar of sugar with an old or scraped vanilla pod in it)
splash or two of fruit juice
Bake in a moderate oven for 30 mins until the plums have softened and the juice has gone all syrupy. I tend to make this when I have the oven on for something else too save energy. Yummy served with natural yoghurt or vanilla ice cream. Works just as well with rhubarb (add a little grated ginger if you like).
