September’s Harvest of the Month is a sweet and tart fruit that’s full of fiber and good nutrition. Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Ruth Chipps from Jackson In Action healthy living coalition takes us outside for a fruit-forward dessert that’s warmed with fall flavors.

2 Tbsp. Butter

2 Tbsp. Brown sugar

2 Tbsp. Honey

¼ c Orange juice

¼ c. Brandy or orange liquor (optional)

¼ c. Dried plums, fine chopped

1 Tbsp. Sliced almonds or walnuts

2 Tbsp. Granola

Ricotta honey cream: Stir together 1c. part skim ricotta, ¼ c honey and ½ t. vanilla
