Plums in Rosemary Syrup


Rosemary Plums
This is such a light, cool, delicious little dessert.  It is sweet, tart, woodsy and has just a hint of vanilla. 

It really needs to be eaten on a blanket with trees overhead.  OR out on the porch with twinkly lights on a summer evening.  But let me just say that it was delicious in my kitchen as my son napped and I took a quiet moment to myself.  So really, I think you can eat it anywhere and anytime and maybe just close your eyes and imagine that you’re in the perfect setting. 

I started with white wine and honey

Added some lemon juice

Then a sprig of rosemary and touch of vanilla bean paste.

I poured this syrup over chopped plums and let me tell you…

…it was good to the last smidgen. ;)
