Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

  • Eat Your Books

    Can substitute peaches, plums, or guavas for apples, and brown sugar for sugar.

    Suggest using light brown sugar for best effect to show off fruit. Sugar color is unspecified in the recipe. If fruit is very sweet, next time I would reduce sugar and cinnamon. It is an easy recipe for summer fruit, appreciated by guests.

    How can something so simple and wholesome be so delicious? My go-to recipe when I need to use up the extra plums from my tree. Great with firm varietals. Irresistible fresh from the oven.
