How to Make Duck Sauce

Duck sauce is a condiment that has a combination of sweet and sour flavor.  The name “duck sauce” was created in the United States because this sauce was originally served with roast or fried duck.  Of course, this sauce can be served with other food such as egg rolls, pork chops, chicken and even fried crispy noodles etc.  The basic ingredients for duck sauce varies from brand to brand but it usually made with peaches/plums/apricots, sugar/corn syrup, water, vinegar, chili peppers and a few spices.

When making the duck sauce, make sure the fruit (peach/apricot/plum) are ripe.   For instance, the peach,  should smell “peachy” and when pressed should be a little bit soft.  When blending, only pulse several times, we still want little bits and pieces of peach in the sauce.
