Cardaplums

A few weeks ago I went a bit mad and bought loads of plums. Now those that remain uneaten are going a bit soft so it’s time to get busy. 

Take a dozen ripe plums and quarter them into a casserole. The ones I had were a bit tart despite being ripe so I took about 15g of sugar and a dozen cardamom pods. I deseeded the pods and added the seeds to the sugar and ground the mix to dust in the mortar and pestle.


I mixed the three ingredients together and put them in a hot oven (180C) for about 30mins. When they had cooked down I cooled them and put them in the freezer until later. 


Perfect hot with ice cream or in a sweet pastry tart. With ice cream
