Plum Sauce

Updated on December 15, 2017

Plum sauce is super for many things-with cold meat, as a baste mixed with soy sauce for barbecuing, in sandwiches with cheese or cold meat or poultry, as a zest to casseroles. It is also ideal to spread over lamb when roasting as it adds colour as well as a delicious flavour.
