This is one of my favorite ways to use plums. To me, they taste like candy when prepared this way. Enjoy over low-fat cottage cheese, yogurt, on top of pancakes, waffles, or just on their own.
6 plums, pitted and sliced
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbls grated fresh ginger (optional)
1/4 cup water
Place all ingredients in saucepan and cook over medium/medium low heat until plums are soft. Serve warm or cold.
