IHCC & CC#20: Fresh fruits/vegetable with Plum sauce

I opted for fresh fruit and raw yam bean instead of roasted parsnips, a very healthy option!  I used three plums - halved and seeds left in, two garlic cloves - unpeeled - bashed, one star anise, small piece of cinnamon stick and drizzled with olive oil.  Roast the plums until soft, cooled.  Remove the whole spices, and rub the plums through a sieve into a sauce pan.  Add sugar, honey, cider vinegar, mustard and cayenne.  Bring to a simmer and cook till thickness you desire.  Cool (I chilled it overnight in glass bottle).
 Serve the plum sauce in small bowl with desired vegetables (raw or roasted), or fruits!  Interesting taste - giving me ideas on another use for this plum sauce!

This week we are singing Dippity Do Dah!
And we are celebrating dips and spreads!

I am co-hosting Cookbook Countdown together with Joyce of Kitchen Flavours.  If you are like, who love to collect cookbooks and have an overcrowding bookshelf (or bookshelves!), yet most of the books have not been used at all, now is the time to change that.  Join us at Cookbook Countdown!

This is something unique and different, altogether! I love the idea of a homemade plum sauce with all sorts of dippers:)
