Plum Compote

This rustic compote features the mellow sweetness of plums and their tender texture when gently cooked. Lemon and sugar bring out the naturally beautiful plum notes and make this plum compote just delicious with your favourite cheese and crackers. Use a combination of plums to make a unique blend of flavours! We used a half red and black plums in this compote which gave off this bright, ruby colour!
