Author Notes

This sauce is an equal combination of red-skinned apples and purple plums. The color is beautiful, and this sauce is terrific with both pork and roasted chicken, not to mention a Thanksgiving turkey. You can make this sauce in advance, and freeze it for the Big Day. With only 4 ingredients, it is a beautiful and easy addition to the Holiday meal. —Bevi
