Plum Sauce al Jefe

9 Aug

The other day, I tweeted about a plum sauce I created for some sumptuous pork choppers. You can see the photo on my Twitter – @The FoodJefe. Please follow and enjoy my regular posts.

Back to the plum sauce…

Esposita and I have an outrageous amount of plums falling off our plum tree, and I love plums. Here is the recipe to make a tangy plum sauce you can use to top your pork or chicken. Remember, the Jefe is not necessarily about being assiduous with  measurements.

  • 7-8 small plums – pitted and sliced up into bite size chunks
  • Heat up a small sauce pan with about 2 teaspoons of olive oil. When it starts to shimmer add crushed garlic and ground ginger. (Note that I think my pan was too hot and the ginger and garlic started to burn. No panic. I took the pan off the burner and quickly added the plums)
  • Add the plums and start stir for 5 minutes on medium heat. That should be enough time to make the plums soft. While they are heating, I add honey and salt.
  • After 5 minutes, transfer the entire sauce into a blender. Blend on low until smooth.

The result is a tangy and slightly sweet plum sauce. Very, very smooth addition to your chops or chicken.

One additional note. I was going to add some unsalted butter while it was heating. I forgot (gasp). Next time I will add it – you can never go wrong with butter. Just wanted to let you know.

Eat well,
