Chinese Plum Sauce Recipe

Plums are the best in August, so I have been buying the farmer’s markets fruit stands out of them since the beginning of the month. Not only do I eat them as a snack every 10 minutes, but I also love to include them in some of my daily recipes as a sweet yet tart compliment to my meals. I love chinese food but typically the sauces are laden with fake and processed chemicals, and don’t get me started on the amount of sugar they throw in them. I make this super easy chinese plum sauce that goes great with pork or turkey. Hope you enjoy!





  • 1 lb of plums, pitted and chopped - approx. 2 cups

  • ¼ small onion, chopped

  • 5 cloves garlic, chopped

  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar

  • 1 Tablespoon coconut sugar or any sugar variety

  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon ginger powder




  1. Place the plums, onion, and garlic into a blender and blend well.

  2. Place the blended sauce into a saucepan and simmer for 30 minutes.

  3. Add in the rest of the spices/condiments and salt/pepper to taste. Stir well and enjoy
