Plum BBQ Sauce

Plum BBQ

Plum BBQ Sauce

6 cups plums, washed, pitted, chopped
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons mustard
2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated
1 teaspoon coriander
1 large onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup red bell pepper, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 jalapeno, finely chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Add all ingredients to a heavy bottomed stock pot. Stir to combine. Cover and simmer about an hour, stirring occasionally.

If sauce is too thin, uncover and simmer until desired thickness is reached.  This will make a chunky sauce. If you want it smooth, blend it in your blender, use a stick blender, or use your food processor.  If your plums are not very tart, you may want to decrease the sugar. This recipe is based on tart italian plums. Omit cayenne pepper if you want less spice. Recipe made 5 pint jars for canning.

Smooth and saucy!
