Plum Sauce

READY IN: 2hrs 30mins
Recipe by Rinshinomori

We have a Satsuma plum tree in our backyard that produces loads of plums every year. I'm always trying to come up with new ways to preserve plums. Because I used very purple-red plums, the color of this plum sauce is not what most people are used to when they open a jar of commercial plum sauce. But, I think this one is very yummy!

Was great on oven-fried pork chops!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add plums, onions, ginger, garlic and water in a large saucepan and heat until it comes to full boil. Turn down heat to low and cook for additional 30 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  2. With a food mill press through or blend using a blender in batches.
  3. If you like your sauce very smooth without the added fiber from the plums, run it through a sieve after using food mill or blender. This is the method I prefer and makes for smoother sauce.
  4. Clean the saucepan and return the sauce to the pan.
  5. Add sugar, vinegar, coriander and salt. Bring to boil and reduce to barely simmer and cook for additional (about) 1 hour.
  6. Fill the sterilized jars and process in boiling water bath for 15 minutes.
