    I bet this does make a delicious stir fry sauce. The photo in the back looks like quite a feast of veggies and chicken.

    Sweet and sour sauce is delicious over chicken, so I bet the plum version would be even tastier. This would also be a good way to get more hidden fruits into my husbands food!

    Plum sauce is called for in so many Asian recipes and a major frustration for me. Commercial plum sauces are not gluten free (soy sauce contains wheat). Once again the Farmgirl connection has come to my rescue ~ I just love ya all ­čÖé
