Spicy Plum Sauce

Plums are a juicy, sweet and tart taste power food. They are an excellent source of antioxidants and have a good amount of vitamins and minerals. I like having them raw but using them in recipes, is a good experience. They have a very unique tarty, sweet and sour taste which brings a new touch to your recipes. Well, this sauce recipe is quite easy and very spicy and I always use it as a sandwich spread with any filling at hand. Last week, I tried these salami sandwiches using this sauce. They were very tasty.

Everybody loves peanut butter and a good combo of peanut butter and plums gives this sauce a nice creamy texture and a nutty taste. Nothing is as good as homemade peanut butter, which is so easy to make (soon I'll post it). So the freshness of plums, goodness of peanut butter and the spiciness of chillies makes this sauce a worth try. Hope you will like it!!! Get the recipe here!!
