For many the lightly colored sweetness of duck sauce is a wonderful accompaniment to many dishes. Whenever you order in or go the take-out route at a neighborhood Chinese restaurant there are always packets of duck sauce also known as plum sauce available to top your favorite meals. Stores in town sell duck sauce in large jars which isn’t always suitable for every family. Over time in the refrigerator it can go bad if not used constantly. Now you can save money and not waste the sauce or your cash by making homemade duck sauce yourself. Three ingredients are all that is needed and each batch is small, yet large enough for a few meals. So why not try making it on your own and enjoy that same sweet flavor and save a few dollars while you’re at it.
- ¼ cup of apricot jelly
- 1 teaspoon of vinegar
- 1 ½ teaspoons of sugar
- Blend together all the ingredients in a mixing bowl until the sugar dissolves completely.
- Store duck sauce in a glass jar and keep refrigerated when not in use.
- Plum jelly can be used as a substitute for the apricot jelly and will give the duck sauce a deeper color.
