200ml water
1 red chilli, sliced
1 Tsp crushed garlic
1/2 onion, diced

In a small saucepan, add plums, sugar and water. Bring to the boil and allow to simmer for 20 minutes. Pour into a blender and puree.

For the sauce, heat macadamia oil in a pan, add diced onion, garlic and chilli. Saute until transparent, add plum puree and vinegar and allow mixture to simmer for 15 minutes. Cool. Press through sieve for a smooth sauce.
