Ingredients

  • 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • 1/2 vanilla bean, split*
  • 6 ripe plums, pitted and halved
  • Vanilla ice cream

Preparation

  1. 1. Using a vegetable peeler, remove thin layer of peel from lemon, leaving white pith intact. Halve lemon crosswise, and squeeze juice to equal 2 Tbsp. Place lemon juice, lemon peels, brown sugar, next 2 ingredients, and 2 Tbsp. water in a large skillet, and bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Remove skillet from heat; stir in bourbon and vanilla bean.
  2. 2. Return skillet to heat, and add plums, cut sides down. Cook, basting with pan sauce, 3 to 4 minutes or until plums are just tender and lightly caramelized. Remove skillet from heat; discard vanilla bean and lemon peels. Cool 5 minutes. Serve plums and pan sauce with ice cream.
  3. *1 tsp. vanilla extract may be substituted.
