Plum Sauce ? - Gourmet_Mom - 10-10-2009

I seem doomed to failure today. Not only did the store not have corned beef, it didn't have plum sauce either! Local independent grocery stores are notorious for having something one week and not having it the next!

ANYWAY....I have two choices here: make plum sauce or use peach preserves. I'd prefer to use the peach preserves, because I don't know if I have everything for plum sauce. I DID however pick up a pound of plums. Could I just cook them down with some sugar?

BTW, the recipe ACTUALLY calls for plum preserves! Help?

I was on a hunt for plum preserve for a recipe from here and never found them. Found every type under the sun but those.

Daphne - I'm no help on your real question though!

Daphne, maybe you could cook the plums down and add Asian flavors - Chinese 5 spice, chili garlic sauce......

here's some ingredients to play with

4 garlic cloves, minced fine
1/2 ounce fresh ginger, minced
1 small onion, minced
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups water
1/8 cup teriyaki sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1/8 cup soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon crushed dried chili
3 lbs plums, pitted & chopped
1 lemon, juice of, fresh
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon water

Place first 11 ingredients into pot. Bring to a boil then simmer 30 minutes.

Mix water and cornstarch. Blend in a blender the solids from the pot with the cornstarch mixture and put back with the liquid simmering all the while. Simmer till thickened.

Pour into sterilized jars (size you like) and put into a water bath for 10 minutes.

Remove jars from water bath cool and store in a cool dark place.

I'm going with plum preserves...One pound plums, 2/3 cup each: water and sugar and half a cinnamon stick. This should yield 1 cup preserves. After looking at the recipe, it calls for 1 cup of preserves added to half the Yakitori sauce. I think I'm good!
