Increase heat to medium and simmer for 2 minutes, then add plums and simmer for 6 minutes or until plums are tender. Add strawberries, remove from heat and stand at room temperature until cool. Purée one-third of the plum and strawberry mixture in a blender until smooth and set aside. Cover remaining plum and strawberry mixture and refrigerate until required.|
