Chinese Plum Sauce

12 December 2011 in Chinese

As it’s our wedding anniversary on Christmas Eve, we tend to eat our Christmas fare then, although last year we were home alone and ate out for only the second time in *mumble* years.  This year the family is with us and our menu will be Prawn Spring Rolls, Whole Beef Fillet with Exotic Mushroom sauce and I have no idea what my daughter-in-law Mel will be bringing for pud.

I want to serve the Spring Rolls with a choice of dipping sauces and as plums are in season I decided that one of the sauces would be a plum sauce.

700g fresh ripe plums

1/2 cup vinegar

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/2 cup chopped onions

1 cup of sugar

1/4 cup sweet chilli sauce

1 clove garlic crushed/grated

1 knob ginger grated

1/2 teaspoon Chinese spice

Wash the plums and then cut in half, twist and remove the stone.

Plums are in season

Chop the plums.

Place all the ingredients into a thick bottomed saucepan, bring to the boil and then reduce to a gentle simmer for about 20 minutes.

The sauce should look like this….

Allow to cool and then pour into a blender and blend away until it’s nice and smooth. This will keep well in the fridge for a couple of weeks, you can freeze what you don’t use.
