Hi.

I’m in an airplane.

In route to Los Angeles.

This weekend I’m hosting my first pop-up dinner on the road.

These honey plums were inspired by a dish I made at my very first pop-up dinner. Fruit lightly sweetened and seasoned with salt and pepper is truly my favorite thing. I don’t like too-sweet desserts and this particular combination balances sugar just right. If you dig this combo I made a salty strawberry and pink peppercorn sauce earlier this summer that you can put on literally everything.

Similar to that salty strawberry sauce, these honey plums are great to top yogurt or ice cream or a cake with. Or eat alone, of course. Here I’ve topped Silk’s Vanilla Almondmilk Yogurt Alternative, which I found in the yogurt section of the grocery store (Kroger to be exact!) with plums and cacao nibs for a crunch.

Salt + Pepper Honey Plums

Prep Time 5 mins

I prefer to use raw, local honey but feel free to use whatever you like. Agave and maple syrup are okay substitutes if you are vegan. These honey plums get better as they age, so feel free to make them ahead of time. Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Ingredients

  • 4 medium sized plums
  • 1 tablespoon honey {see notes}
  • 1/8 teaspoonpink Himalayan salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • yogurt
  • cacao nibs

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl cover the plums with the honey, salt and pepper and stir until well-combined.
  2. To assemble the yogurt bowl:
  3. Top the yogurt with plums and a sprinkle of cacao nibs and dive in.

    Gah! I’m so sad I missed your LA dinner. I really really really wanted to go and we even thought about packing up and driving down Friday morning (good thing we didn’t though because then we all got sick). But I will make these plums and think about you and pretend you’re feeding them to me.
