Baked Plums

October 13, 2016
My friend Lisa has a plum tree which produced massive amounts of fruit this year.  An easy way to get rid of it all was to sweeten them up, bake them, then add a scope of ice cream.  This recipe could be adopted for any stone fruit (a fruit with pit in it).
This recipe calls for “star anise” which I had never heard before.  It comes from the fruit of the Illicium verum evergreen tree grown in the Vietnam and southwest China area.  The star anise oil is very fragrant and similar flavor to fennel and licorice.
