Small batch plum sauce (to have with everything!)

Makes 450ml bottles/jars

750g plums, de-stoned

230g brown sugar

450mls vinegar (I used malt & apple cider)

2 tsps salt

2 tsps pickling spices (or use a mix of peppercorns, all spice, ginger)

  1. Place all ingredients in the panĀ and bring to the boil then simmer until the plums are all squashy. About 45 mins.
  2. With a stick blender puree the sauce and bring back to the boil then simmer for a further 30 minutes or until it thickens.
  3. Bottle into sterilised bottles/jars then just screw on the lids.

To sterilse bottles/jars: place in oven at 150 C for 10-15 minutes. Pour boiling water over lids. Fill bottles/jars with sauce whilst still hot and fit lid immediately.
