Chinese Plum Sauce


This Chinese plum sauce is my new favorite plum canning recipe. I was a little skeptical at first because of all of the onions and garlic in it, but this plum sauce is meant to be served with meat, and is a staple in Chinese and Asian cuisine. 


Serve this delicious plum sauce with egg rolls, won tons, chicken wings, or use it to baste chicken or pork.
