"Ended up with 3 500ml jars after getting it nice and thick. Good taste! Used yellow plums and finished a nice dark colour, will make again!"
"This plum sauce is excellent. I subed out the pepper flakes for 3 habenero peppers. it did not make it to hot..just put a little tinge down the back of the throut. I would recomment to everyone to try this recipe."
"This is excellent! I subed out the pepper flakes for 3 habeneros. It did not make it to hot but just put a twing in the back of the throut. I would recommend to everyone out there to make this sauce as it is delightful."
"that's peppers, not peepers, sorry, got carried away"
"I made this sauce with 2 quarts of canned plums. It gave me 6 cups with the juice, thus having me to add 1/4 cup of cornstarch as a thickening agent. I also substituted the pepper flakes for 2 small to medium red hot seeded peppers, and have used 2 habanero peepers per extra hot sauce lovers. The plum sauce is a hit no matter what you add in. We dip our egg rolls in it, and use it a lot for basting shrimp, pork, whatever you want to dip it in. Even on a cream cheese bagel. yum!"
