Plum sauce is a thick, brown sweet and sour condiment, made in a variety of guises throughout Asia. In Cantonese cuisine, it is extremely popular as a dip for deep-fried dishes, including spring rolls, noodles, and deep-fried chicken balls, as well as roast duck and pork. It is made from plums, sugar, salt, vinegar and a blend of spices.

More about Plums
Plums may have been one of the first fruits domesticated by humans, with the most popular cultivars which are not found in the wild, only around human settlements. Their history has been traced to East European and Caucasian mountains. The taste of plums ranges from sweet to tart, a perfect balance for jam. At Wickedfood Earth Farm we grow 4 different varieties of plum – Songold which is large yellow, Redgold with a yellow-red fruit, Methley a medium-dark red plum, and Prune D’Agen which is a small dark red very sweet variety.
