When I saw the challenge on FoodBuzz to create a simple recipe using dried plums, my mind starting to come up with all sorts of ideas. The fact that we’re limited to only using six ingredients (not including salt, pepper, oil, and the plums) makes it all the more interesting.

This is the first of three recipes I played with for the contest, and is the one I entered!
