Honey Plums

A quick, two ingredient recipe and both ingredients are available at the Market. Fresh plums have arrived, and, did you know, Wayne Miller’s, Michigan Fruit, The Meat Goat and Twin Gardens Farm sell regional honey?  Don’t stop with two ingredients.  Serve these plums with blue cheese from The Cheese People or over a pastry from Swirl Café, The Bread Lady and Delicja.  How about a desert wine from Glunz Family Winery?  Make it your own Farmers Market desert.


  • 1/2-3/4 cup wildflower honey
  • 10 slightly underripe plums, stones removed, quartered (the plums not the stones)


1.       Cover the bottom of a saute pan with honey. Place over low heat to warm the honey.

2.       Then add the plums, cut side down. Cook for 5 to 6 minutes or until the cut sides are slightly browned. Turn the plums and cook for another 3 minutes or until the fruit is soft but not mushy.

3.       Serve with ice cream
