Makes about 1 3/4 cups / This fresh, supereasy sauce makes a nice topping for ice cream, pancakes, or French toast.

8 ripe plums (about 2 1/4 ounces), stones removed, slivered
1/4 cup agave nectar, or to taste
1 teaspoon orange- or raspberry-flavored liqueur
Pinch of sea salt

1. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer gently until tender and fragrant. Use a hand blender to partially blend, or pulse in a food processor (it should be slightly chunky).
