Along with vitamin C, beta-carotene, potassium and fibre, plums are a source of lutein, a lesser-known carotenoid that is lacking in many people's diets. Lutein, which is also found in leafy greens, parsley and pumpkin, helps protect your retinas against the damaging effects of free radicals.
I've made this a number of times and have substituted pears and peaches instead of plums. This is quick and easy, the skin it develops is wonderful. The kids could make this. - 26 Jul 2010
The whole family enjoyed this. I found that cooking it for 30mins at 200deg was too long. Will try it next time without the oven being on fan-forced. This recipe would also be really tasty made with apricots or cherries. - 13 Oct 2008
