These Simple Roasted Plums are versatile! Use them as a side dish for pork and chicken, or as a dessert with ice cream.
Ladies and gentlemen, I beg you to try this easy-to-make side dish! No wait. It’s a dessert! No wait. It’s BOTH! 😁
Think of it like this. Remember those TV dinners with a small section of baked apples when you were a kid? Was that your side dish, or your dessert? It really could be either. That’s what we have going on here. These spiced, sweet plums are perfect next to pork or chicken, but they are equally good as a beautiful dessert, topped with, say, some non-dairy ice cream… (Note that the chopped hazelnuts I’m showing in the photo are for non-AIPers, or people who have successfully reintroduced nuts.)
Ingredient and equipment notes
Fortunately, almost all the ingredients for this recipe are readily available. For people on the autoimmune protocol, I do recommend Singing Dog Vanilla. (The alcohol cooks off.)
For equipment, it is always a good idea, IMO, to have an assortment of roasting trays. They are heavier than cookie sheets, and have a higher rim. A set of long tongs is also helpful.
- These are amazing with pork loin
- Try them in place of the chutney in my Cranberry Fig Chutney with the boneless chops.
- Place them next to Braised Pork Ribs w/Apple Parsnip Mash.
- Serve them with Orange Maple Drumsticks.
- Serve warm with whatever non-dairy ice cream you tolerate!

As always, I am wishing you great love, and deep healing!
