Black doris chinese five-spice sauce
( MAKES about 4 cups )
Other dark red-fleshed plums could be used.
- Place all the ingredients in a large saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally for 30-40 minutes, until the plums and onion are soft.
- Blend until smooth. Return to the saucepan and simmer until thick, stirring often to prevent the sauce sticking to the base.
- Pour into hot sterilised jars and seal.
