I can't seem to get my plum sauce to a nice thick stage ? What can I do please, please. Thanks I hope.

Mine is always really runny too. Last time I made it, which was about a week ago, I took it upon myself to add some cornflour.

Reduce it further?

reducing tifurther ill change flavour simple addition is to add apples the pectin in the fruit is a natural thickener and will also add a slight sweetness i add a cinnamon quill and a star anise to balance flours aswell add two peeled apples per 500g and shuld make diffrence

i would grate the apple skin in as most of the pektin is in the skin and if its grated you wont know its there

would it not thicken as time goes on. I am sure one year my tomato sauce seemed very runny, but after a few months it had thickened up

Simmer it longer, stirring often so it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan - also, it will thicken more once cold. Maybe put a few tablespoons of the mix on a plate and into the freezer till cold - you'll see how thick it will be once it's cooled in your bottles, so know when it's cooked enough for your preference.

That is so interesting regarding the apples. I'm going to try that next time.
