No Sugar Added Plum Sauce is a healthier version of the traditional Asian sauce. It is delicious as a glaze on poultry and as a dipping sauce. This recipe is an excellent use of overripe plums.
Plums contain powerful antioxidants polyphenols such as anthocyanins (responsible for the purple color) that contain anti-inflammatory properties and may help reduce cancer and heart risks. Additionally, the consumption of plums has been shown to increase iron absorption.
The color of the sauce is dependent upon the color of the plums, yellower plums will create a golden-colored sauce, while purple will result in a more traditional deep purple color.
