This recipe is great! I had 7-plums that were too ripe to eat but I did not want to throw them out. I searched the net for plum sauce recipes and found this little gem. It was easy and quick to make. I used 1-1/2 the ingredients to accommodate the extra fruit. I also used white balsamic vinegar to keep the natural color of the fruit. And, I added fresh grated ginger root to give it a kick. When it was done I added a splash of olive oil. Yumm Like I said, this recipe is GREAT! Thanks Martha
