  • Hi My.Nongy…this looks and sounds interesting but I was wondering if you could explain what Esy Sauce is? THANKS in advance.

    • Ezy Sauce is a liquid you can purchase at woolworths and coles. It’s a mix of spices and citric acid I believe. You can google recipes for substitutes if you’d like to make your own.

      • Thanks for the answer – I was wondering too. :)


  • oh what a lovely sounding sauce – so versatile too – never ever thought to make my own! – thank you for sharing your recipe :)


  • The star anise surely add a beautiful aroma!!


  • Looks like we are going to have an abundance of plums this year, so will definitely try this recipe – thanks for sharing!
