Recipe Ingredients

  • 5 cups coarsely chopped mixed fruit (apples, plums, and pears)
  • 1 cup water
  • ¾ cup apple juice
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon apricot preserves
  • ½ cup packed light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon dry mustard

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place fruit in a stock pot over medium high heat. Add water, apple juice, soy sauce, apricot preserves, brown sugar, garlic powder, and dry mustard. Bring to a simmer, stirring frequently to dissolve brown sugar. Reduce heat, and continue simmering for 40 minutes, or until fruit is completely soft. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  2. 2 Blend sauce in a food processor or blender until completely smooth, adjusting consistency with additional water, if desired. Cover, and refrigerate until ready to use.

  7. This recipe tastes really good:)
