Method

 
In a large saucepan put the plums, apples, water, onion and the ginger.

Bring to a boil and then simmer gently for 30 minutes.

Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for another hour or until it has reduced and you get a nice thick consistency.

Allow to cool and then blend in a blender or use a stick blender. Pass through a fine sieve.

Using a funnel pour into sterile glass jars/bottles (to sterilize, rinse in hot water and pop straight into the microwave for 1 minute on high)

Leave in a dark place for at least 6 weeks, the flavour develops the longer you leave it and the colour darkens accordingly.

Tip of the day

 
White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
