Fresh Asian Plum Sauce

barbara lentz


There is this great Chinese restaurant that serves the best plum sauce and I could never find a packaged plum sauce that even came close. Once I made this one I found out why. It is made by scratch. This sauce is almost identical to the plum sauce at China Fair. Yum
