Heat olive oil over low heat in a medium pan. Add shallot and salt and sauté for 4-5 minutes, stirring often, or until softened. Add balsamic vinegar, thyme, brown sugar, and cloves and increase heat to high to bring to a simmer. Add plums and stir to combine. Cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring often, until plums are softened and balsamic is reduced to a syrupy consistency. Season to taste with kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper and serve warm spooned over imported Burrata with toasted bread slices and garnished with additional thyme.
