Asian Plum Sauce for Canning

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by Violet 2

This sauce is great for dipping, as a grilling sauce, or brushed on baked pork chops or chicken. It is especially good for dipping chicken strips or egg rolls in.

Top Review by Chef Maman

This turned out great and tasted way better those store bought plum sauces that are mainly made with pumpkin and add a bit of plum for reddish colour and a bit of taste.I used my small sweet purple skinned (red flesh inside) plums and it made for a very dark purple sauce but it is great with eggrolls and spring rolls . Try it!
