Products to Use
Cut fruit and remove pits. Cut into slices
Melt butter, stir in brown sugar and honey until hot
Add sliced plums and cook about 4 minutes.
Add orange juice and optional brandy or liquor. Note: Be careful, as liquor will become a flambe if cooking on a gas range and pan is tilted. You can also ignite the liquor by using a hand-held long handled lighter. Stand back from the pan when igniting the flambe and always keep a fire extinguisher nearby in the kitchen.
Cook another 3 minutes until sauce reduces partially. Fruit will stay slightly firm.
