Serve these plums over pound cake or Brennan’s Old Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream. If your plums are very ripe, the cooking time will be shorter.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Arrange plums, cut side down, in a medium ovenproof skillet or baking dish.  Sprinkle butter, sugar, orange zest, and pinch of salt over plums.  Roast until very tender but still intact, 40 to 45 minutes.  Pour orange juice over top; swirl to incorporate.  Serve warm.
