8 plums, red or black, firm-ripe
2 tsp sugar
1/2 cup water
Briefly wash the plums. Split them in half, then pull them apart and remove the pits. Add them to a saucepan with the sugar and water. Cook over medium-low heat, covered for about 5-8 minutes, until the plums are soft.
Take the pan off the heat and let it cool. Serve with its juice either lukewarm or at room temperature.
The compote keeps up to 10 days in the refrigerator or up to 4 months in the freezer.
