This is an old family recipe, kids love it. its a sweet sauce and makes heaps.
8lbs plums (4 kg)
3lbs sugar (1.5kg)
2lbs onions put through a kitchen wiz (1kg)
half teaspoon ground cloves
half teaspoon ground allspice
1 preserving jar of malt vinagar
1/2 cup of salt
All plums are different in texture so cooking time varies,keep stiring so it dosen't catch on the bottom, I cook mine in a preserving pan on the BBQ. Boil down to the sauce texture you want. Cooking time for me is over an hour, never really timed it. The whole family gets involved and wants to have a stir of the sauce. Stones are probably better removed first. Weight does not include stones.

There's a yummy one I saw in a Chelsea Sugar recipe booklet, probably on their website.

Thanks Jillybeen.
Made half quantity and it turned out well. I cooked it for longer so probably reduced it. People like it.

Chinese Five-Spice Plum Chutney

1.5kg red plums
500g Granny Smith apples
1 Large Onion
3 cloves garlic
1 T grated root ginger
1 L white vinegar
1 T each five spice powder, salt
1 t ground chilli

Halve and stone plums. Place in a large pan. Quarter apples and core. Place in food processor and coarsely chop, add to plums.
Quarter onion add with garlic to processor, coarsely chop. Add to plums, together with the remaining ingredients.
Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer gently for about 90 minutes or until thickened. Stir often to prevent the mixture burning on the bottom.

Made this recipe last plum season, very tasty.
