Created for you by:
Recipe type: Condiment
Yield: 2 cups
Ingredients
  • 5-6 cups of plums, de-pitted (or fruit of choice)
  • 1 granny smith apple, peeled
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • honey or coconut sugar as needed
Make It Like So
  1. In a medium saucepan, place plums, apple and lemon juice.
  2. Bring to a low simmer covered for 30 minutes. Remove lid and simmer while stirring to reach desired consistency. Some fruits may take longer to thicken if they have a higher water content. Also remember that this will thicken slightly as it cools.
  3. Once desired thickness is achieved, remove from heat and stir in sweetener, 1 Tbsp at a time until it tastes just perfect to you.
  4. Allow to cool, transfer to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth, or desired thickness.
  5. Store in clean mason jar in the fridge for up to two weeks or in the freezer for a several months.
