- Preheat oven to 425F. Line an 8 × 8-in. baking dish with parchment paper. Combine all ingredients and spread in one layer in the baking dish. Roast, stirring occasionally until plums begin to soften, 20 to 25 min.
- Remove from oven. Discard star anise. Using a potato masher, gently mash and let cool 30 min.
- Refrigerate up to a week. Serve with artisanal cheese from the market.
If plums are tart, use the higher amount of sugar; if they’re sweet, use less sugar.
