Fresh-Plum Sauce

Yield 1 1/2 cups (serving size: about 2 tablespoons)
This easy, 3-ingredient fresh plum sauce is a little different from a traditional Chinese plum sauce because it does not have any hot and spicy ingredients.  Use it as a topping for grilled chicken or pork, or even as a dessert sauce over ice cream or pound cake.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups sliced plums (about 3/4 pound)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
