My DW made up this sauce to go with our rolls Crispy Fried Chicken Spring Rolls. This sauce is SO much better than the commercial stuff you get in those tiny packets made from pineapple or something as ridiculous as that. I like the dark duck sauce that is popular in the northeast made from apples and plums. Not that orange crap that tastes like chemicals. You know the kind I'm talking about. The ones in the little packets they give you for take out in so many places across the states. Anyway, this one blows the others out of the water! This will be our standby from now on, you can bet on that! Don
I made this sauce with plums and apples to go with homemade Chinese egg rolls. It had a nice flavor; but the texture was more like baby food applesauce than duck sauce. It reminded me of apple butter - not at all what I want on my egg rolls. I guess I was expecting more of a glaze consistency and less of a puree.
I had a Chinese dinner and invited friends over to share it with me. I wanted a Duck Sauce to go with Chinese Egg Rolls, and Linda's Lobster Rangoon. It was great on our rice too. This sauce was just what I was looking for! This is now a staple in my house to have with many meats, fish and poultry dishes. It's delicious!
This sauce was so good with our Is It Egg Roll or Eggroll?. I used both plums and apples. This is so much better than the orange stuff you get in many Chinese restaurants, that I can't even begin to tell you! This is something I will keep as a staple, because it is so versatile and it is really delicious! I drizzled it on our Fried Rice too!
We did Chinese at home the other night and I thought of this recipe, as I hate that orange crap that you get in some of the Chinese restaurants. That stuff is nothing like this Duck Sauce made with apples and plums. I couldn't wait to try this one, and now I did, and I can tell you it is well worth making! We all licked the bowl clean with all our appetizers and rice. Wonderful recipe Linda. Thanks for posting. Melanie
Used 2 large apples which yealded 3 cups and 5 plums which yealded 2 cups. Very good combination of flavours. Have used it with baked chicken and still have a lot left in the fridge. Will try to freeze some of it. Made for Chinese/Vietnamese New Year Tag Game '08. Thanks for posting.
I made this sauce to dip my crab rangoons in. Got the recipe for Linda's Baked Crab Rangoon here. Delicious combo and one that will be made here often. My company raved and raved as we were eating them. Excellent recipes Linda! Michelle
