Ingredients
4 plums, halved and pitted
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon cumin
1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
Directions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a shallow baking dish with cooking spray.
Place the plums, cut-side up, in a single layer in the baking dish.
Whisk together the orange juice, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cumin, and cardamom in a bowl; drizzle over the plums.
Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until plums are hot and the sauce is bubbly.
*Season with ground white pepper and use it as a side dish for pork or chicken. Sprinkle with toasted almonds and spoon it over vanilla bean ice cream, angel food, or pound cake for dessert! Play around with the spice combination by adding cloves, allspice, or cayenne. Be adventurous!
