Plums rarely command the attention that peaches and other showy summer fruits do, but they should. They come in a wide range of colors and shapes and are complex and delicious cooked just as they are. Here it’s simmered with fragrant cumin for a savory turn, while also balancing out the undertones of salty, tangy feta. Serve it all with some toasted or grilled bread to soak up the delicious sauce. This peach jam is also delicious over yogurt or vanilla ice cream (you can leave out the seasoning if you want it all sweet) or kept delicious as a topping on a meat and cheese platter.
