Time to remedy that, and quickly! In three minutes to be precise.
Mulled Plums - wintry, warm and delicious, and ready in 3 minutes. What's not to like! It's also a great way to use up those supermarket plums that never ripen. My plum culprits were I believe of the Angeleno variety - presumably favoured by supermarkets because they are completely immune to temperature, bruising, handling, stacking, storage and are pretty much indestructible - and unfortunately often fairly tasteless.
3 Minute Mulled Plums (serves 3 to go along with yoghurt or custard)
- 2 or 3 hard plums, depending on size
- 1 tbsp runny honey
- 1 tbsp Ribena or other fruit cordial
- 2 tbsp water
- 1/2 tsp ground mixed spice
Put in a microwavable bowl with all the other ingredients.
Give them a quick stir, then cover and microwave for a minute and half.
Stir again, then pop them back in for another minute and a half.
|If you like, decant to a bowl that they did not boil over in before serving, for a more sophisticated look...|
