  • 1 lb plums
  • 1/2 pint water
  • 3 oz sugar
  • 4 tablespoons red wine or orange juice
  • 2 small bananas
  • 1/2 oz flaked almonds


  • Wash and wipe the plums, then halve them and remove the stones.
  • Put the water and sugar into a heavy-based saucepan and heat very gently until the sugar has dissolved, stirring occasionally. Bring the syrup slowly to the boil, without stirring, then boil for 2 - 3 minutes.
  • Carefully add the plums to the hot syrup; allow it to bubble up over them, then reduce the heat and cook the plums gently until they are just tender when pierced with a fine skewer.
  • Using a slotted spoon, transfer the plums to a serving bowl.
  • Add the wine to the syrup and boil rapidly until thickened and reduced by about half. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for a few minutes, then pour over the plums. Leave until completely cold.
  • Just before serving, peel the bananas and cut diagonally into slices. Fold gently into the plums,
  • then sprinkle the flaked almonds over the top. Serve at once or the bananas will discolour.
