Hi All,

My plum trees are full again this year as are my pear trees..I have about 8 of each tree.

I will have a glut of both fruits and wondered if anyone had any ideas for recipes or preserving....possibly Pear Cider.

I would appreciate any ideas.....or any swaps.

Spicy plum sauce for chicken, pork and dipping

10 meduim sized fresh plums
2 heaped tablespoons of brown sugar
cup of worcester sauce (or Molho Ingles if worcester not available)
a cup of soya sauce
1 teaspoon of fresh grated ginger
a few drops of tobasco sauce
teaspoon of piri piri paste
2 tablespoons tomato puree
1 garlic clove crushed or finely chopped
1 glass white wine

Place plumbs in a saucepan, cover with water and bring to the boil. Let the plumbs sit in the water for about 5 minutes or until the skins split. Drain and rinse in cold water. Peel and remove the stones, place in a large bowl and puree with a blender. In a large saucepan bring to the boil white wine, worcester sauce and soya sauce, simmer and stir in the sugar until disolved. Stir in all remaining ingredients and simmer for about 15 minutes or until the liquid has reduced. Baste chicken or pork with the sauce and bbq or oven roast. Once chilled the sauce can be frozen for up to 3 months
