Looking for a fruit sauce to top a dessert, breakfast, or to go with a cheese plate? This recipe is sweet and tart and very versatile.
Whether you’re finding apricots and plums on sale at your local store or you have access to fruit trees, making this Apricot and Plum Fruit Sauce is a must!
You can make this recipe with only apricots, but plums add another level of flavor and tartness that makes it worth the addition. I like to use this easy fruit sauce on crepes. It can also go well with pancakes, or as a jelly in a sandwich.
- Apricots: use fresh, ripe apricots!
- Plums: You can use any type of plum, and I say the more wild the better. However, I often use a red or black plum.
- Water: No need to say more, just use fresh, clean water.
- Maple Syrup: option to replace with honey, agave, or white sugar. If you are using white sugar as a replacement, I would try a little less than the recipe states, then increase to taste if you wish.
