  1. Wash and rinse your bottles and place in a warm oven to dry and sterilise
  2. Halve the plums and remove the stones, roughly chop the flesh
  3. Peel and chop the onions
  4. Put into a pan with the vinegar, and all of the other ingredients
  5. Simmer gently for about an hour until the plums and onions are soft
  6. Pour the contents of the pan into a goblet food processor - you will probably need 2 to 3 batches - and blend until smooth
  7. Pour through a sieve back into a pan and re-heat until the desired consistency. The sauce will thicken slightly on cooling
  8. Pour into the warm bottles and seal immediately
