Saucy... Spicy Asian Plum Dipping Sauce



Spicy Asian Plum Dipping Sauce
 Found on cannedtime

10 Ripe Red Plums (pits and stems removed and cut in quarters) 

1/2 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar 

1/2 Cup Tamari Soy Sauce 

1 inch of fresh Ginger, chopped 

2 whole cloves of Garlic, no need to dice 

1 sliced Jalapeno Pepper seeds included 

1/2 tsp Stevia 

2 Star Anise (optional) 

If you are not canning this sauce, just put all of the ingredients listed above in a medium size pot and boil, stirring frequently, for about 30 minutes on medium to reduce down the plums and meld the flavors. Remove from the heat and let it sit for a few to cool down some. Using an immersion blender, work through the plums to create a thick sauce much like a Salsa texture. And that’s it. Store it, freeze it, use it up within a month if it’s not frozen. It goes great with chips, 

If you “can” the sauce. You’ll need a little more prep. Makes 4 -1/2 pints You’ll need to prepare at least 4 1/2 Pint size canning jars. Sterilize and have them ready to go when your Plum sauce is ready. Prepare the sauce just the same as outlined above and then set your pot near your canning jars. Ladle the sauce into each jar leaving 1/4 inch head space in each one. Wipe down the outside and top rims carefully to remove any sauce that may have dripped and place a lid and ring on each jar, tightening just until a resistance is felt, they shouldn't be screwed on overly tight for the boiling water process. Place the jars down into your water bath canning pot so the each jar has water covering the top by at least 1 inch. Bring to a boil and time the canning process 10 minutes at a full boil. Remove them from the heat carefully sliding the pot off of the burner and let them sit there untouched for about 15 minutes. Using a canning jar clamp, carefully remove each jar from the pot and sit them on top of a dish towel in an undrafty area. Don’t move them for at least 8 hours so that they can set up and cool. After this, check to make sure each jar sealed correctly, remove the outer ring before storing. Label, enjoy within the next 2 years.
