Five Spice Plum Sauce

Submitted by: JO_JO_BA

Introduction

Adapted slightly from Put 'em Up! by Sherri Brooks Vinton. I love that this plum sauce was actually made from plums and not buckets of sugar like commercial sauces (the one we usually buy is made of "sugar, pumpkin, white vinegar, modified corn starch, plum purée, salt, concentrated lemon juice, garlic (contains soybean oil), red jalapeño pepper, citric acid, acetic acid, caramel colour").

Ingredients

    2 pounds plums, pitted and chopped
    1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
    1/4 cup white wine vinegar (or rice vinegar)
    1/2 cup coconut sugar
    1/4 cup tamari (or soy sauce)
    1/4 cup freshly grated ginger
    4 garlic cloves
    1 tsp onion powder
    1 tsp white pepper
    1 tsp Chinese 5-Spice
    1/2 tsp turmeric
    3/4 cup water


Directions

Combine all the ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat, cover and simmer until the plums have broken down and mixture is thicker, 30-35 minutes.
Using an immersion blender, purée until smooth.
Return to the heat and simmer 15-20 minutes longer, until "ketchup-thick "
Stores in the refrigerator up to 1 month, the freezer up to 3 months.
