    Makes: about 75ml


    1 plum, cut into small chunks
    ½ echalion shallot, finely chopped
    ¼ tsp caster sugar
    75ml extra virgin olive oil
    2 tbsp red wine vinegar

    1. Put the chopped plum, shallot, sugar and 1½ tbsp oil in a large frying pan set over a low-medium heat. Cook gently, stirring often, for 8-10 minutes, until the plum and shallot are soft and caramelised. Set aside to cool.
