Prune Plum Compote
Recipe: Prune Plum Compote


  • 2 1/2-3 pounds prune plums, washed and pitted
  • Honey, Agave or sugar to taste (I used 2-3 tablespoon agave+1 tablespoon brown sugar)
  • Cinnamon to taste (I used Vietnamese Cinnamon purchased from Spice Merchants )


  1. Place the pitted plums in a large, heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch oven. Cover with a couple of inches of water. Bring to a boil, stir, then reduce heat to very low. Remove and discard brown plum skins as they rise to the surface.
  2. Let simmer 5 to 7 hours or until thickened to desired consistency. Season to taste with sweetener and cinnamon. When cool, package in an air-tight container and refrigerate.

Active Time (to pit prunes): 15 minutes

Simmer Time: 5-7 hours

Number of servings (yield): apx. 2 cups plum compote
