I do have one of grandma's handwritten recipe books in the house somewhere, I have to go out for a few hours but will search it out and if she has a plum sauce recipe in it I will post it, as it probably is the same one Mum used to use.

My grandmother's was 2.8 kgs plum, 230 grms onions, 6 dspns salt, 1.4 kgs sugar, 1.8 litres vinegar, 2 teasp ginger, 28 grms cloves, 1 teasp pepper: Boil together for about 1½ - 2 hours.Mouli, allow to become completely cold then bottle.I have been using Delmaine because I am out until the Omega plums come in.They are similar but I think this one is better.
