There is nothing better than bringing out your own bottled sauce at the table and being able to state “this is a sauce I made with last years plums that fell off the tree…” hmmm…yes that would be nice, however, it’s not quite the case with this sauce.
These plums were bought for a photo shoot, the leftovers frozen and they were imported!!! (For magazine work we usually shoot in advance of the season, due to to publishing deadlines, so it’s quite often hard to use locally grown produce – I know it seems wrong, but that’s just how it is). So I had them in the freezer, all forgotten about – which is a major problem in my kitchen, what I can’t see doesn’t get used.
Miss Eliza 15 months, found them on one of her rummages (it goes like this: everything out of the freezer, now everything goes back in. Repeat), so we made plum sauce. It’s way easier than you think, you simply throw everything into a big pot and cook until pulpy. Simple as. Serve with pork tenderloins, roast duck breast, roast chicken, dumplings, spring rolls and burgers.
