  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.
  3. Transfer the plums to a baking pan and put 5-inches under the broiler. Broil until the sugar is bubbling and the plums are browned, about 5-7 minutes. Let cool slightly, then serve with chopped almonds and a dollop of yogurt, if using.
