Fresh Turmeric & Plum Sauce

A paleo-friendly recipe from Primal Desire.


12 plums pitted and quartered
2 turmeric root “fingers” peeled (they will leave color on your hands; maybe use gloves)
⅛ cup ghee / butter / coconut oil
1 cup water
1 tsp honey
1 clove garlic, minced
3 shallots, chopped


  • Put plums into a saucepan
  • Add ghee and sauté
  • Add grated turmeric, garlic and pearl onions
  • Sauté until everything is soft (~4-6 min)
  • Add honey and water, simmer for 60 min (until sauce thickens to a ketchup-like texture)
  • Serve over roasted duck or grilled tempeh
