We received lots of beautiful BC red plums in the fall and have planned to make something special with them. So they are now out and ready for the markets. As we were closing in on the Christmas season Sugar Plum jam seemed like a most perfect jam for the gifting season. It is made with plums and spices and tastes just like Christmas!!! It will be at all our sales from now to Christmas so look for it.
Then we still had plums - what about Chinese Plum Sauce? Wow it is really good!! It is spicy and slightly sweet, full of ginger, garlic, onion and tons of spices. It is great with any Asian foods such as egg rolls, pot stickers, spring rolls, deep fried dishes such as chicken balls, and so forth. Use it beside or over pork, chicken, duck, wild meats or tofu. Use it as a glaze on grilled meats or as a marinade. It is a good starting place for making your own glazes as you can add more spice with Sriracha sauce or add curry, Chinese Five Spice powder or other flavours of your choice.
We have included a few recipes for your reference.
