This is the plum version of the famous flaming "cherries jubilee". If desired, you may omit the alcohol in this recipe. It will still be terrific!

1 tsp. grated orange rind
1 lb. fresh plums, pitted and thickly sliced
1/4 cup brandy, or cognac (optional)

In a large skillet, combine sugar and cornstarch, stir in cranberry juice and orange rind. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring constantly; cook until thickened.
