Wait! Don't throw away those plum and apple cores!
I will use the back of chunked plums and apple to make plum sauce, sprinkle on top of oatmeal, ice cream, cereal, etc.
I put the cores in some water, added a splash of apple cider vinegar, a shake of ground gloves, a shake of ground cinnamon, and about 1/8 cup of brown sugar. After simmering that for about 20 minutes. I let it cool, because I wanted to go take a nap.
I mixed about a cup of the cooled mix with about 1/8 cup of corn starch and a few teaspoons of tapioca pearls. It all thickened with 15 minutes after I brought it all up to a simmer. I poured the batch into a shallow dish so that it could cool faster.
Canning jar come in so handy. You can see that I added some fresh blueberries to the cooling mix. I think this will make an excellent topping for ice cream, cheesecake, oatmeal, etc.
