Given my recent love for plums i decided it would only be fair to provide a recipe for a plum relish - its especiallly nice with cheese and meats on a cold platter, or even as a dipping medium for finger food. You can even use it as a spicy start for a plum sauce if you're stuck for time. With this in mind it goes well with all kinds of poultry and most game. In fact it goes with pretty much anything, it plums are your thing. If like me you can get plums very cheaply (hello reduced shelf) then by all means make some of this, it keeps for quite a while when sealed and kept cool.
Makes a very big batch so adjust accordingly..
5 red onions thinly sliced
4 Garlics crushed
5 Red Chillies deseeded and finely sliced
500g of Soft brown sugar
250ml of Apple juice

Small thumb of ginger peeled and finely diced
Small punch of Allspice
Add all the ingredients into a thick bottom pan and bring to the boil
Simmer for about an hour and stir frequently or until the liquid has reduced to a syrup
