Hot Plums with Almonds - Another Dessert for Gourmets

Hey guys,

Plums are great...I love them. They are also pretty good for preparing a delicious dessert/snack that fulfills all criteria of my low-carb diet (see here). They consist to 85% of water and contain lots of vitamins, minerals and healthy fibres (that's one reason why they are well-known as a "medicine" for a good digestion).

Ingredients:


- 18 oz. (approx. 500g) frozen or fresh plums (both are ok)
- 1 oz. (approx. 28g) butter
- 2-2.5 oz. (approx. 50-70g) flaked almonds
- 1 dash white wine
- 1 tbsp. cinnamon powder

Preparation:
Cut the plums into halves if you use fresh ones. Heat the butter in a saucepan until it is melted. Put the plum halves inside and add a dash of white wine after 3 minutes. Let it cook for approx. 10 (fresh plums) or 15 (frozen plums) minutes and then add the cinnamon powder and the flaked almonds. Let it simmer 5 more minutes. Stir it from time to time. Finally your next healthy dessert is finished! Again a simple one that can be prepared by everyone.



Cheers,
Andi
