Plums | At Down Under | Viviane Perenyi

I'm all inspired by the goodness of food I have in my kitchen lately. From that beautiful and tasty garlic to sweet plums and green almonds, I feel spoilt. Of course, I could not resist making a tart with some of the plums. Classic. The quintessence of summer.

The cute sugar plums are new to me. I like their shape, size and colours. I've prepared a part of them in a simple dessert, with yogurt, honey and fresh almonds. A treat on a balmy day.

Roasted Plums | At Down Under | Viviane Perenyi

Roasted Sugar Plum with Yogurt Honey and Fresh Almonds (for 4)

6 sugar plums, halved and stone removed 1 tbsp sugar 4 tsp honey 8 heaped tbsp yogurt Dozen fresh almonds, cracked open and finely sliced (or lightly toasted almond flakes)

In a small plate spread sugar and stamp the cut side of each plum with sugar to coat. Place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Grill (broil) the plums for a couple of minutes or until the sugar starts to bubble and caramelise. Remove from oven and let them cool for 5 minutes. Scoop yogurt into glasses/ramekins, top with plums, drizzle with honey and sprinkle almond.

Je suis vraiment inspirée par la saveur des produits dans ma cuisine dernièrement. Entre ce superbe ail, très goûteux, les prunes sucrées et les amandes fraîches, je me sens gâtée. Bien sûr, je n'ai pas pu m'empêcher de faire une tarte avec une partie des prunes. Classique. La quintessence de l'été.

Les sugar plums, toutes mignones, sont une nouveauté pour moi. J'aime leur forme, petite taille et couleurs. Je les ai préparées dans un dessert tout simple, grillées et servies avec du yaourt, miel et amandes fraîches. Un délice.

Prunes Grillées, Yaourt, Miel et Amandes Fraîches (pour 4)

6 petites prunes, coupées en deux et dénoyautées 1 c.à.s sucre 4 c.à.c miel 8 c.à.s bombées de yaourt 1 douzaine d’amandes fraîches, fendues et amandes finement coupées (ou des amandes éfilées légèrement grillées)

Dans une petite assiette mettre le sucre et presser la face coupée de chaque prune contre le sucre. Placer les prunes sur une plaque de cuisson recouverte de papier sulfurisé. Griller pendant quelques minutes jusqu'à ce que le sucre se caramélise et commence à buller. Retirer du four et laisser refroidir 5 minutes. Répartir le yaourt dans des verres ou ramequins, poser les prunes sur le dessus, verser le miel et les amandes.
