Wonderful! I have made it three times now and each has worked out beautifully. Perfect with salmon! (Either bake it in the sauce in wax paper or foil, or add a spoonful to the cooked salmon like a relish). The only thing I did differently (being very lazy) was to skip the processing (we like it lumpy) and cut out the cornstarch by slowly simmering it enough to reduce to a thick sauce. Just great!
This plum sauce is so good! I made 5 batch's of it! I used pure maple syrup instead of the brown sugar as I don't like using sugar. It is a big hit with family and friends. One batch I made it with fresh squeezed OJ and rind with a hint of cloves. Love it ....Love it!
I was given yellow plums and wanted to make something I could us as a gift. This was perfect. I make a Hawaiian style sauce that uses apricot preserves and will be modifying that recipe to use this sauce from now on. Thank you for a great recipe.
