Fruit Glorious Fruit


Make the most of plentiful summer fruits with these delicious suggestions.



Dotti’s Plums in Red Wine


500 g ripe red plums
275 ml shiraz or other intensely fruity red wine
2 star anise
4 whole cloves
95 g soft brown sugar

•   Preheat oven to 180C/350F.
•   Run a knife around each plum,  twist to pull each half apart and remove stones.
•   Arrange plum halves in a single layer in a shallow ovenproof dish.
•   Tuck the star anise and cloves among the plums, then sprinkle with sugar and pour wine on top.
•   Bake on middle shelf for around 50 minutes – until plums have turned jewel-red and the wine is thick and syrupy. (Spoon the juices over the plums a couple of times during baking).
•   Remove the spices and serve with a good vanilla ice-cream.

Jan’s Mango Avocado Salad


•  Slice 2 mangoes and 1 avocado, squeeze lemon juice over them.
•  Combine with macadamia nuts chopped in half.
•  Sprinkle with shredded coconut. (Can also top with feta cheese if you like).

Margaret’s Fruit Kebabs and Yummy Dipping Sauce


•   Thread bite-sized pieces of your favourite fruit onto a skewer.
•   Mix 1 cup sour cream with 1 cup thickened cream.
•   Stir in 2 tablespoons of honey and 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh mint.

Bruce’s Drunken Mango


•   Use 1 mango cheek per person.
•   Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of  Cointreau or Grand Marnier.
•   Serve with a scoop of good quality vanilla ice-cream.  Top with a sprig of mint.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Hi, I have had to purchase a digital radio to sit on my (busy)desk at work, as our station for hold music is not yours and cannot be changed by order of the Management, and I simply can't go a day without listening to your wonderful, fantastic music/news etc, as I get withdrawals. So hard to get through on the phone for the comps, unbelievable, I now have 'dialar's finger' ha
