I used the fortune plums , smaller with a yellow flesh and deep red/purple skins. Marinate fish or chops and cook on the grill. Very tangy and particularly nice with fish. Allie


3 lbs Italian plums
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
3 hot chilies, , finely chopped
1 teaspoon clove, ground
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons allspice
1/2 tablespoon salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups vinegar


Wash the fruit and prick each plum with a fork.
Put all the other ingredients into a saucepan and bring to a gentle boil, stirring until the sugar has melted.
Add plums and cook for 3-4 minutes.
Put plums into sterilized jars.
Keep boiling the syrup until it thickens, pour over plums.
Check the jars are sealed, keep for 2 months before using.
