Plum Applesauce - West
105 mins (prep 15, cooking 90)
5 ingredients
6 servings
Found this recipe in Gourmet (Sept 2006). My Italian Plum trees were bursting and I was looking for quick and tasty ways to use them up. This was the perfect recipe! I made some minor adjustments (like adding cinnamon). You can use any kind of plum you have access to. If you use a small plum like Italian, just pit and halve them, instead of quartering them. Gala or McIntosh are recommended because they are a bit softer and lend themselves to a applesauce (I used Gala). Quick, easy and yummy, my favorite kind of recipe!!
