  1. Place fruit in a stock pot over medium high heat. Add water, apple juice, soy sauce, apricot preserves, brown sugar, garlic powder, and dry mustard. Bring to a simmer, stirring frequently to dissolve brown sugar. Reduce heat, and continue simmering for 40 minutes, or until fruit is completely soft. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  2. Blend sauce in a food processor or blender until completely smooth, adjusting consistency with additional water, if desired. Cover, and refrigerate until ready to use.

This is excellent! I omitted the apple juice and used only plums. WOW. Great on rice, pasta. meat dishes. We love it! THANKS!

I reduced this Chinese Duk Sauce recipe to fewer servings so that I could compare it with my much more traditional recipe, which takes fewer ingredients. Thanks for posting this recipe, but I will continue making my recipe.

This was the first time I cooked duck and was rather pleased with how it turned out. A lot of people told me duck was greasy (which it is) but this sauce counteracts the greasiness and compliments the flavour of the meat quite nicely. The flavour of the sauce is influenced by the fruit used - tart apples and under-ripe plums made it pleasantly tangy.

made this, haven't used it in anything yet, but it tastes good! i made a big change though: i left out the sugar and used water instead of apple juice. and it's just fine. i added a bit more of the apricot preserves and that was sugar free too. fruit used: apple, pear, apricot and peach.
