Flavors ~ Plum

This is the first post of the next 52 weeks ~ Flavors is the blog to follow. Every day my friends and I will be posting a recipe, based on the ingredient of the week. We will be 'building' recipes based on the flavor bible.
Our first ingredient is Plum. According to the Flavor Bible, plums are sweet and astringent. Flavors that are recommended will be capitalized in my recipe.
Keeping it true to me ~ I've come up with a recipe that is simple and yummy. Y'all will be wanting to try this quick dessert.
Plum Tart
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
1/2 cup sliced ALMONDS
2 tablespoons SUGAR
2 cups thinly sliced Plums
1/4 cup ORANGE marmalade
1 tsp CINNAMON
1 Tbs crystalized GINGER
Preheat oven to 350° On a lightly floured work surface, roll out puff pastry to a 12-by-16-inch rectangle. In the center of the pastry spread the orange marmalade, minced ginger, and sprinkle with cinnamon. Slice the plums and arrange on the top. On the outer 1-inch, sprinkle with almonds. Bake until light golden, about 20 to 25 minutes. Serve with a scoop of ICE CREAM and a drizzle of SOUTHERN COMFORT (if desired)

Join us for the ride.
Happy Cooking y'all~
Sandi
