Ingredients

  • 1/22 pounds Summeripe plums (4 to 5 plums) chopped. May use a combination of Summeripe plums and Summeripe Plumcots
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sherry cooking wine
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 large garlic clove, pressed or minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried savory

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped flat leaf parsley
  • Pinch of cinnamon
