Serve this plum compôte with Greek yoghurt for a healthy dessert or spoon it onto your morning porridge.
Heat a large saucepan and pour in the boiling water. Add the sugar and let the mixture bubble for 30 seconds.
Add the plums, cinnamon sticks and star anise and simmer for 8-10 minutes.
Remove the plums, and simmer the sauce, stirring gently until it thickens, then pour over the plums and leave to cool slightly before serving.
