A classic Norwegian late summer dessert found on frukt.no
Plum compote is a delicious dessert that often wakes nostalgia in Norwegians. The compote has been a classic here in this country for more than a hundred years. Serve it lukewarm with a little whipped cream or 50/50 cream and milk.
200 g sugar
1 dl white wine
2 tablespoons potato starch
4 tablespoons cold water
 Cut the plums in two, remove the stone and cut the fruit meat into pieces.
 Put the plums in a saucepan, pour in the white wine and sugar and bring to a boil.
 Let the compote simmer for 10 minutes until the plums are tender.
 Stir the potato starch into the water and gently pour it into the plum mixture while stirring. The plum compote must not boil after this.
 Cool the compote a little before serving.
 Served with whipped cream or 50/50 cream and milk. A light drizzle of almond flakes will give the compot a little chewiness.
