Dried plums and red wine sauce

Dried plums or prunes sauce, just the name makes me think about Christmas in Colombia! This sauce goes well with pork, chicken or turkey and has a fantastic rich and sweet and tangy flavour and a smooth and creamy texture.

I’m not going to go into the pork loin we used the sauce for because my husband got himself a new toy, a sous vide machine, and I steered away from process of making it. The grill now sits a bit forgotten in our balcony and the sous vide machine is the toy of the hour. Me, I’m enjoying delicious, perfectly cooked and tender meat with none of the hassle of actually cooking it. Life is sweet!
