If you’re sick of overly sweet maple syrup on your pancakes, then this is the perfect antidote. The tartness of the plums, combined with the tang of ginger makes this sauce one that is seriously delicious.
Of course, you don’t have to use it on pancakes, it also goes well over ice cream, stirred into plain yogurt for an extra kick, or even as a spread on bread. I’m also envisioning a cake with ginger plum sauce oozing out from between layers . . .
