Plum Sauce/La Salsa di Prugne
Plums are served both fresh and dried in Italy. Dried plums are often poached in wine. When I want a quick, but fancy dessert, I make this easy sauce and spoon it over lemon sherbet, vanilla ice cream or a plain tea cake. Use red or purple plums or a mix.
MAKES ABOUT 1 CUP
- 2 cups (about 10 plums) peeled, pitted and sliced
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 Juice oflemon
- Place the plums, sugar, and salt in a one quart sauce pan. Place over medium heat and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and cook until the mixture thickens into a sauce. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the cinnamon and lemon juice.
- Serve over vanilla gelato, meringues or as a topping for sweetened ricotta cheese.
