Seeking fresh plum recipes? Try our dessert crepe recipe for brandied plums over crepes.
Because my grandfather has the world's most prolific plum tree, we're always seeking fresh plum recipes.
Simmered in a sauce of brandy, apple juice, and ginger, plums make a tantalizing topping for warm dessert crepes.
In fact...dare I say it?
They're plum good!
And now that fresh plums are available nearly year-round (imported from Chile), you don't have to wait for late summer to make this delicious treat.
Melt butter in a medium skillet. Add brown sugar and stir to combine. Add brandy. Cook for 1 minute. Stir in apple juice, ginger and plum slices. Simmer for 10 minutes on low heat until plums are tender. Add cornstarch-water mixture and stir until thoroughly incorporated. Let simmer for 2 minutes until sauce is thickened.
Assemble crepes: Place two warm dessert crepes on each plate. Ladle 5-6 plum slices and ¼ cup of sauce over each serving. Serve immediately.
Yield: 4 servings (2 crepes each)
