and her cooking inspiration lies in her sunny suburban garden, decorated with a party of fruit trees – lemons, apples, persimmons and plums to name a few. when each fruit is about to fall from the tree, she gathers them into her kitchen and viola! a heavenly homemade dessert.
this year, i’ve decided to find fruit recipes that i can make for her.
my first recipe is an easy and delicious compote, using her rich santa rosa plums and sweet, fragrant rosewater.
compotes are notable because they add flair to any everyday dish – crepes, ice cream, waffles, almond butter sandwiches. and one of my favorite quick breakfasts? greek yogurt with fruit compote.
i can’t wait until the plums are ready to pick off the tree…
