1½ pounds red or black plums, (5-6 medium), pitted and quartered
2 cloves garlic, minced
⅓ cup packed light brown sugar
⅓ cup cider vinegar
⅓ cup water
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon ground allspice
¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 2-inch cinnamon stick
Combine plums, garlic, brown sugar, vinegar, water, salt, ginger, allspice, pepper, cayenne and cinnamon stick in a large heavy saucepan. Bring to a simmer, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the plums have cooked down to a puree, 35 to 45 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Discard the cinnamon stick. Transfer to a bowl or storage container.
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 6 months.
This is da bomb!
Easy to make, it gives you a wonderful sweet and tangy flavor of plums whenever you want it! Freezes well, so you can have these flavors whenever you want. This is great on grilled chicken (makes a great sandwich spread!) and try swirling it into Greek yogurt - absolutely superb.

I've been making this for years ever since I found it. SO good on top of meatloaf; great as a sandwich spread for chicken, or a glaze for pork tenderloin. Love that it freezes well and you can pull it out in the middle of winter for a bright summertime plum flavor with whatever you're having for dinner.
