- 1/2 pound dried plums (pitted) or jarred dried plum puree
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 5 egg whites
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
- Serving suggestion: whipped cream
Preheat oven to 275 degrees F.
Place the dried plums in a saucepan with 1 cup water and cook at a simmer until soft, about 30 minutes. Push the mixture through a strainer to puree. Add the sugar to the puree and cook 5 more minutes or until it is like marmalade. Let cool slightly. Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks, then gradually mix in the puree, and lemon juice.
