Spicy Plum Sauce

Plums are in the season. Autumn is the perfect season to create recipes with plums and have also been creative in my kitchen with plums.


Preparing the plum sauce


Ultimate season to make the plum sauce which goes well with any dessert or cheese buffet. Last night have hosted a dinner party and created my own new recipe as a spicy plum sauce. Complimented so well with the cheese buffet. My guests loved the plum sauce.


Autumn fruit plum

Plums belong to the family of peaches , nectarine. Juiciness and the acidity of this fruit adds great flavour in savoury and sweet dishes. Served this plum sauce with some dessert as well last night , it was well received by my guests.
