Broiled Plums

Broiling plums is a great way to bring out their natural sweetness and make them safe to eat when you’re in chemo. You’ll find that even with the added sugar these broiled plums are still pleasantly tart -- the perfect treat when accompanied by creamy Greek yogurt.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 8 medium ripe black plums, halved and pitted
  • ½ cup yogurt, or as needed
  • ¼ cup toasted almonds, chopped

Method

1. In a medium bowl, mix together the ground ginger and brown sugar.  Add the plums, and toss to coat.  Let sit for 10 minutes to macerate.

2. Meanwhile, preheat the broiler.
