Honey-orange poached Plums


750g firm plum


(mixed varieties if you can get them)

140g clear honey

4 tbsp orange blossom water

300ml orange juice

biscuits and Greek yogurt (or frozen yogurt), to serve


Put the plums in a pan with just enough water to cover them, then pour over the honey, orange blossom water and juice. Bring to a simmer, then cover and cook for 15 mins until the plums are tender through to the stone, but not mushy.


Using a slotted spoon, lift out the plums to a serving dish. Bring the liquid back to the boil and simmer to a thin syrup. Pour over the plums and leave to cool. (You can peel the plums to serve, if you like a posher finish.)


Serve with crunchy biscuits like our Honey-bread biscuits (see 'Goes well with'), and Greek or frozen yogurt.



1/4 cup Streamland honey

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon white wine vinegar

1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
