Chinese Plum Sauce
Most of my haul is now sitting in a bucket stewing in water en route to becoming Plum Port, but I thought I'd try a Chinese style plum sauce with the remainder.
As the recipe is being made up as I go I thought it best to write it down in case it is success!
500g plums, weighed out before pitting
1/2 small onion, roughly chopped
1 large garlic clove, roughly chopped
2cm ginger, roughly chopped
2 tbsp shaoshing rice wine
1/8th tsp hot chilli flakes
200g brown sugar
I have bottled this in between writing. It is tart, sweet, and spicy in that order. I would be curious to follow a jam recipe next time ie 1:1 fruit to sugar and then add just the chilli and maybe the garlic.
