Roasting Plums to make Plum Juice

Do you know that medium of heating can change the way natural sugar reacts? So, roasting is a dry heat method of cooking which helps in caramelizing the natural sugar of fruit and help in bringing out all the hidden flavor of fruit and if the plums are sweet enough not very sour then probably you don’t even need to add any additional sweetener to this drink. There is one more reason of roasting over boiling that plum contains high percentage of water-soluble vitamins and fibers. Roasting help to keep those nutrients intact in fruit itself.
