    This made a tasty (but extremely sweet!) dipping sauce for dim sum. I also mixed it with cornflour and soy sauce to add to stir fried vegetables. It's very quick and easy to make, so I'll probably have it again soon!  -  28 Jun 2012


    This is so easy to make and it's delicious! I only changed a couple of things. I used the whole 18 oz jar of plum jam, omitted the pepper, used garlic powder, and added a couple of tablespoons of soy sauce. Served as an additional dipping sauce with Baked Teriyaki Chicken from this site. Thanks for the recipe!!!  -  16 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This plum sauce is perfect for crab rangoons. I couldn't find plum jam so I used canned plums in syrup. I removed the pits and peels and blended them before adding them to the pot. I added extra sugar and it turned out well. It was a little too spicy for me so next time I would add half the amount of pepper.  -  13 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
