Lightly sweetened honey plums with salt and pepper.
How are you?
I am currently sitting in an airplane.
Flying across the country.
In route to Los Angeles.
Because I’m taking my dinner series on the road.
And I am holding two pop-up dinners in LA.
Things have been a little hectic lately, so I wanted to bring you an end of summer dessert that is incredibly simple to put together. These salt and pepper honey plums were inspired by the simple dessert I made at my very first pop-up dinner. Seasonal fruit, lightly sweetened with honey and seasoned with salt and pepper is truly my favorite thing.
I really do not prefer desserts that are too-sweet. I could eat a bowl of berries with unsweetened cream after a meal and be completely satisfied. So when I develop dessert recipes, they are typically easy, fuss-free and very lightly sweetened.
This particular combination uses the salt and the pepper to balance the sugar for an even, and somewhat savory experience. If you dig this – I made a salty strawberry and pink peppercorn sauce earlier in the summer that you can literally put on everything.
Similar to that salty strawberry sauce, these honey plums are great to put over yogurt or ice cream or even a cake. Or of course you can totally eat them alone. 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 an extra crunch.
