Davidson Plum Sauce

Category, ,

The tart flavour of this unique fruit combined with a touch of Merlot make a sauce that can be used with either a mains or desert.

 500 g Davidson plums, washed and chopped (approx 16)
 2 cups Brown sugar
 1 Cinnamon Stick
 ¾ cup Water
 ½ tbsp Butter
 Pinch of salt
 ¾ cup Light red wine, I used a Merlot
 ½ tsp Chilli, finely chopped with seeds removed (optional)

1

A unique tart fruit that resembles the European plum but with mix of tangy acidity and sweetness. This sauce can be used for desserts or this is the perfect sauce for kangaroo, any game meats, beef or even chicken. An optional touch of chilli add another dimension.

2

Put all the ingredients into a saucepan and bring to boil, turn down the heat and cook until the plums have completely disintegrated.
I must admit I'm a bit impatient and so I left it on boil, but stayed with the sauce, it took about 15 minutes.

Push through a sieve to get a fine sauce, discard the skins, cinnamon stick etc.

Put the sauce back into the saucepan and reduce until until thickened as desired, although it might be thick enough after cooking with the plums, its up to you

Adjust sweetener if necessary.

Serve in jug or on plate to accompany meal.

OPTIONS

Add Star Anise, Fennel or any other spices to flavour the sauce. A little Anise Myrtle at the end of the cooking adds a lovely flavour.

For sweet sauces, add a little vanilla.

Add other chopped berries ie strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, great for a cheesecake.

I used 16 Davidson Plums of various sizes.
