Spicy Oven-Roasted Plums

"Several years ago I was looking for a recipe to take advantage of our bumper crop of plums, and came across a recipe similar to this. After tweaking a bit, I have come up with a very versatile version that my family and friends love. Season with ground white pepper and use it as a side dish for pork or chicken. Sprinkle with toasted almonds and spoon it over vanilla bean ice cream, angel food, or pound cake for dessert! Play around with the spice combination by adding cloves, allspice, or cayenne. Be adventurous!"

I was not all that keen on these. For me it was the cumin. It just ruined the taste and I found it over powering. Also this recipe makes ALOT of sauce for just 4 plums. I didn't use nearly hav...

Fast, easy, and very good -- my toddlers even licked it up! But I do think it could be even better if it had a companion flavor to complement the spicy sweet-tartness of the plums. Next time, I ...
