I had a punnet of plums sitting there looking very lonely in my fridge and next to it, a vibrant red sweet chillI pepper, just calling out to me… saying I will say save these plums! Ok, so now I have fruit and veg talking to me lol! But boy did this pepper do good.
It teamed up with the plums so nicely and roasting them also added to their flavour. It’s the first time I’ve worked with a sweet chilli pepper and it truly is something!
Tangy and sour notes from the plums and a little heat from the pepper. The texture together is so velvety, perfect as a dipping sauce or as a chutney. I’ll definitely be making this again! Hope you enjoy it!
Have a wonderful week, much love D x
