Mirabelle plums join with flowers and spices to perform a feat of gymnastics in this impressive dessert.

In France's Lorraine region, this dessert might be served with oubliés, a traditional local pastry specialty.

  1. Over low heat, cook the mirabelles with the sugar until they break down slightly. Purée in a blender.
  2. Keep the coulis warm, then infuse in it 2 saffron pistils. Set aside.


  1. Roast the whole mirabelle plums lightly with a knob of butter.
  2. Pour the coulis into a wide-rimmed dessert bowl and top with a rose petal.
