Plum Mousse

Plum mousse is a savoury sweet sauce that is delicious with cream or yogurt

Honey fermented plum mousse is a sweet and sour sauce that is packed full of flavour. It is amazingly delicious. Perfect with ice cream, yogurt or in a trifle.


  • 1 lbs plums
  • 1/3 cup wine
  • 3 whole cloves
  • 1 pinch of ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch of anise seed
  • 4 tbsp raw honey
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds (optional)


  1. Slice the plums in half and remove the pit.
  2. Place the plums in a medium-sized saucepan with the wine and spices. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  3. Strain the plum sauce into a glass jar for fermentation.
  4. Allow to the plums to cool to room temperature.
  5. Stir in the honey and the vanilla extract.
  6. Screw on the lid, and leave the jar to ferment somewhere dark at room temperature for two days – a kitchen cupboard is perfect.
  7. After fermenting, add the pinch of salt. Taste the sauce, and add more honey. Exactly how much honey will depend on the sweetness of the plums. For a thicker mousse, stir in the chia seeds.


  • To make fermented plum mousse, it is important to use pure raw honey. A lot of commercial honey is fake or adulterated. However, fermentation is not required. So if you can’t find raw honey, then simply use commercial honey and skip the fermentation.
  • A food mill (affiliate link) is helpful to strain out the plum skins, but a spoon over a colander would work as well.
