Yield: Yields about 1 cup
Plums boost the tangy-sweet flavor of this quick homemade barbecue sauce, which is finger-licking good on grilled chicken, pork (ribs, especially), and duck. Wait until the meat is almost cooked before brushing on the sauce, lest it burn.

I followed the recipe closely and was disappointed in the end result - too acidic and way too runny a texture for a bbq sauce. Maybe some of this was due to the difference among plums. After some doctoring- diluting with water, neutralizing with a little bit of baking soda (added a pinch at a time) and adding some corn starch to thicken I am content enough to use it on oven ribs though still not thrilled.
Do not waste the ingredients on this. Upon reading, it sounds good. Upon delivery it was down the garbage disposal. Was the one 5-star review from the creator of this recipe? Total waste of good plums 😡😡
Fantastic! I slathered the sauce on pork ribs and they were a huge hit, even with our eight year-old who can't tolerate much heat. The flavor was awesome; a perfect balance of sweet and heat.
