Slow cooker plum and ginger compote recipe

This was so easy and so delicious! Autumn in a bowl.Yes, it is photographed on the floor. No, there wasn't a counter clean at that precise moment. That's what happens when you cook 8 slow cooker recipes in 4 days. (Festive ham, red cabbage and Christmas pudding coming up amongst others, if you're interested!)

Ingredients for 2 (Double or triple this up. You'll want more):

1lb/500g plums, halved and stoned, slightly under-ripe ones are fine
1/2" root ginger, grated
2 tbsp honey (more  if your plums are slightly under-ripe)


Place ingredients in slow cooker. Cook on High for 2-3 hours or Low for 4-6. Serve with thick natural yoghurt or vanilla ice cream.


Why didn't I know about this before? Stewed fruits in the slow cooker are almost always brilliant (apples, pears etc.) but the ginger and honey totally made this. Yum! Mellow, unctuous, the slight ginger fieriness against the cool yoghurt. Ravishing.
