Every time Christmas rolls around I get a little excited because that means that all of the stone fruit comes into season here in Australia! My family eats plums, mangoes, cherries, apricots… anything they can get their hands on until it’s almost coming out of their ears!

Not only is it yummy to eat when it’s a stinking hot day but also cook with! I found this scrumptious recipe in a free recipe book at my local Woolworths Supermarket a few years back and fell in love. Or should I say my cracker, cheese and Plum Ginger Paste all fell in love!

Instructions
  1. Cut plums in half and take out the stone. Chop. Pop into a medium saucepan along with 1 cup of water on medium high. Bring to the boil. Then reduce heat to low. Pop a lid on and simmer away for 20 minutes. Plums should be soft and be falling apart.
  2. Grab your stick blender and puree until smooth. Using a set of scales weigh how much puree you have then place puree back into the saucepan. Measure out the same amount of sugar and add to the puree. Add ginger and lemon juice. Heat over medium heat and stir until sugar has dissolved. Boil away for 20 to 25 minutes until puree becomes thick like a syrup. Remove from heat immediately. Test by spooning a small amount into a chilled cup and if ready it should firm up to like a paste. Let cool for 5 minutes and take out your ginger slices. Be sure not to leave unattended while boiling. The paste is like a toffee and can go from being ok to be burnt really quickly in a split second.
  3. Evenly distribute the plum paste into 4 x small glass serving bowls. Cool until set. Cover with glad wrap and use on demand. Can last in the fridge for up to 6 months.
