"To everything there is a season..."

Recipe Name: Plum Sauce
Category: Dips & Sauces
Recipe From: Lynne Mickley
Description: A delicious sauce for poultry and ham.
2 tsp (10 mL) Watkins Original Grapeseed Oil / Canadian Link
4 tbl (60 mL) chopped shallot (about 1 medium)
1 1/2 tsp (6 mL) Watkins Thyme / Canadian Link
1 cup (250 mL) dry red wine
10 tbl (150 mL) plum preserves
1 cup  (250 mL) warm water
1 tsp (5 mL) Watkins Chicken Soup & Gravy Base / Canadian Link
3 tsp (14 mL) cornstarch
2 tsp (10 mL) Dijon mustard (optional)
In a medium saucepan, saute shallot in oil until translucent, about 1 minute. Add thyme and stir until fragrant. Add red wine and simmer till liquid is reduced by about half. Stir in plum preserves and simmer, stirring constantly.

In a small bowl, stir together water, Soup Base and cornstarch until dissolved. Add to plum sauce and stir till well blended. Stir in mustard if desired. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce has thickened.

Notes from Lynne:
I couldn't find any plum preserves, so I used red plum jam instead.
Instead of dry red wine, I used plum wine, which is what I had on hand.
I forgot to put in the Dijon mustard, but it tasted amazing without it, so I don't think it's needed.
