3 Key Ingredients to a Fruit Sauce

01 Chopped fruit - fresh or defrosted frozen

02  Sweetener - sugar or honey

03 Citrus juice - orange, lemon or lime

Chopped Fruit


For best results use fresh seasonal fruits that are well ripened.  You can use frozen fruit, defrosted or tinned fruit.



Choose a sweetener that compliments your fruit and flavour intentions. For plum sauce, brown sugars give a nice molasses hint.

Citrus Juice


Citrus juices help the preservation of fruits and add a nice zest. For plum sauce, try orange juice.
