“Whenever I have plums that are past their prime, I make this sauce. It’s a great base for a marinade for ribs, a dipping sauce for duck or pot-stickers, or even as a purée to fold through ice cream.” – Hannah Lwery


  • 1 kg Woolworths Flavourburst plums, stoned and roughly chopped
  • 100 g water
  • 2 T sugar
  • a pinch salt

Cooking Instructions

1 Place all the ingredients into a saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring. Cook until soft and saucy in consistency.

2 Once cooked, cool, then blend until smooth.

3 Store in an airtight jar in the fridge for up to one week or freeze. Use in recipes such as the Lebanese-style pomegranate-and- plum chicken.
