Austrian Stewed Plums

, , , ,

Autumn is coming, in the evening the temperature is milder, daylight hours shorter and its time to harvest the fruits.

Plums are typical autumn fruits and you usually have a lot.
Amongst other recipes, we make this plum roaster, simple and keeps for a whole year.

It goes well with many warm deserts and pastries, e.g. Kaiserschmarrn.
But it also harmonizes with Grießschmarrn (A typical Austrian semolina treat), porridge, semolina flummery and the likes.

Austrian Stewed Plums (Plum Roaster)
  • 1 kg plums
  • 125 ml water
  • 1 shot of redwine
  • juice of a lemon
  • 4 pieces of cloves
  • 1 cinnamon bark
  1. Cut the plums in half and remove the pit.

  2. Put cinnamon and cloves in a spicebag

  3. put water, sugar, redwine, lemon juice and the spicebag in a pot and bring to boil.

  4. Add the plums and boil for some minutes until soft.

  5. Remove the spice bag.

  6. Fill the hot stewed plums in the prepared jars and close them immediately.

  7. Let the jars cool completely.


Please note: Jars have to be very clean. I place the jars and lids in the sink and pour boiling water over. Fill plums in hot jars and close.
When a lid has “retracted”, the plums will keep well until, at least a year. Store in a cool and dark place. (e.g. in the Basement)

Enjoy preserving!

  1. […] We like it best with strawberry sauce. But the dumplings also taste very delicious with plum roaster or apricot […]
