  • 300g fresh plums
  • 5 cloves
  • 1 star anise
  • 125g brown sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2cm-fresh ginger root
  • 180ml white wine vinegar
  • 1 to 2 pinches of Espelette chili
  • Step 1 Cut the prunes in half and remove the bones. Break them down and place the pieces in a large tea ball along with the cloves and star anise. Put the prunes, the sugar, the peeled and finely chopped ginger as well as the vinegar in a pot. Bring to a boil, insert the loaded tea ball and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir until the sauce has thickened. This takes up to an additional 10 minutes.
  • Step 2 Remove the tea ball. Give the preparation time to entirely cool down and mix with an electric mixer. This sauce is to be warmed up on low heat, it should be stored in the refrigerator, and can even be frozen.

Good to know!

There are many versions of this Asian recipe. This one is made in USA. We love serving it with our Grilled Duck Breast in the summer. Our favorite type of prunes for this recipe is the Asark Premier.
