6 Ripe plums
2 tbsp Wesley Cottage Bees Pure Honey
Cinnamon stick (optional)
Greek yogurt (or your favorite natural yogurt)
Granola (see our recipe)
Fresh mint leaves for garnish (optional)
Begin by preparing the poached plums. Cut the plums in half, removing the pits, and set them aside.
In a saucepan, combine Wesley Cottage Bees Pure Honey and water. For extra flavour, add a cinnamon stick to the mixture.
Bring the honey and water mixture to a gentle simmer over medium heat, stirring until the honey dissolves completely.
Carefully add the plum halves to the simmering liquid, ensuring they are submerged. Allow them to cook for about 5-7 minutes, or until they become tender and juicy.
Once the plums are poached to perfection, remove them from the heat and let them cool slightly.
To assemble your dessert, spoon a generous amount of natural yogurt into serving bowls or glasses.
Place a few poached plum halves on top of the yogurt, drizzling them with the honey syrup from the poaching liquid.
Sprinkle a handful of your favourite granola over the plums, adding a delightful crunch and texture.
For an extra touch of freshness, garnish with a few fresh mint leaves.
Serve immediately and enjoy the luscious combination of flavours and textures!
