Davidson Plum Paste (The Cook & the Chef)
¼ cup water
885gm Davidson Plum puree
2 teaspoons aniseed myrtle
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Puree plums in blender or food processor. In a large heavy pot, pour in the water & plums. Stir in the sugar, then the aniseed myrtle and the lemon juice.
Cook on a high heat, stirring continually, for about 20 min. It’s ready when it’s just short of being toffee.
Pour into a shallow dish. Allow to cool & set. This keeps if well sealed.
Serve spoonfuls of paste with strong sharp cheese & walnut toast.
