Winter and warm fruit seem to go hand in hand and with the snowy winter Lancaster has been having these plums just hit the spot. On a recent trip to the grocery store I found some amazing deep purple plums. I love plums, fresh from the tree or baked in tarts, or, as in this recipe, baked on their own with a sweet almond filling. Finish with a bit of creme anglaise, sweetened whipped cream or vanilla bean ice cream.
