How to make plum sauce

When prepping the plums you will slice them in half and pit them. Leave the skin on for this recipe. It adds some extra flavor to the sauce. Once all of the ingredients are in the pan, (minus the brown sugar) let it simmer covered for 20-22 minutes. This allows the plums break down and absorb all of the delicious flavors.

Add the plum mixture to a food processor and blend it well until all of the lumps are gone. Pour the sauce back into the pan and add the light brown sugar. Once the brown sugar has melted and is well combined in the sauce you can serve it. I prefer to serve my sauce slightly warmed. Enjoy this sauce with pan roasted chicken, salmon or crispy tofu. No matter what you drizzle this sauce over, I can guarantee this plum sauce recipe will be a hit.

If you want to make this recipe vegan, simply swap the honey for maple syrup. Then you’ll have a fully vegan sauce recipe. Drizzle over crispy tofu cutlets with a side of white rice for the ultimate vegan meal.

Storage

Store leftover plum sauce covered in the refrigerator for four to five days days. While you can enjoy it chilled, I prefer it when it is slightly warm. Heat in the microwave for 15-20 seconds. This recipe makes 8 servings of sauce. Please see below for nutritional information.
