I found the sauce way too sweet.
Amazing. The lamb came out very tasty and tender. Great sauce too. We loved it.
Lamb was lovely on its own, since it shared many of the same spices as the plum sauce. However, I am so glad I tasted the sauce before adding it to the lamb, since both my husband and I found the sauce medicinal and inedible. Followed the recipe precisely, so unless the spices have gone south in my cupboard, even after a recent refresh, I don't know what went wrong. With expensive meat like lamb, I was glad it could be "saved" by omitting the sauce. Next time, I might try a blackberry sauce instead.
Plum sauce is very tasty, although when shopping from dried plums, remember that they will be labeled as prunes.
