Mrs Renshaw's Plum sauce recipe

I was lucky enough to get this recipe from my friend George's mum. George always has this awesome plum sauce in his cupboard and so because rich juicy plums are in abundance right now in Geraldine, I got him to ask his mum for the recipe-which I am now sharing with all of you. This stuff is good enough to eat right off the spoon, so go out, pick some plums and get bottling!

  • 3 lbs ripe plums (wash cut and destone)
  • 1 1/2 lbs brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 pints of vinegar
  • 1/4 pint water
  • 3 small tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 onion chopped finely
  • 4 cloves chopped garlic
Put all of the ingredients into a large pot and boil for two hours. Let cool and then blend in the food processor to make smooth (if you choose- it may be smooth enough after boiling) and bottle into sterilised glass bottles.

  • 1/4 pint is about 1/2 a cup
  • This sauce is a perfect excuse to recycle old spirit and wine bottles with a screw on cap.
Thanks Mrs Renshaw
Enjoy xx
