I bought Plum and Hoisin sauce for a recipe.  I like the Hoisin much better but I need some ideas for using the plum sauce.  It does have a definite ginger taste.

I would try it as a dip for chicken nuggets.

LOL "plum" jumped out at me because I just saw a recipe from Taste of Home that used plum preserves/jelly - I wonder if you could use the plum sauce instead?


It was in an article "55 Easy Labor Day Recipes Made in a 13" x 9"  Pan" (5 star). Of course I just saw the recipe so I've never tried it, though I did think it looked good and saved it. Woman Happy

I think plum sauce tastes terrific on chicken or pork basted like a BBQ sauce.
