I had the is hoisin sauce a plum sauce argument with my beloved, and I won. It is actually a soy based sauce

hoisin sauce
A rich brownish-red Chinese sauce made from soybean paste, garlic, vinegar, sugar, and spices. Available in specialty markets and some supermarkets.

Chinese plum sauce is a different thing again, and just as yummy!

Are you sure Kyles,? It's been a little while since I used that yummy Hoisin sauce, but I could swear,(I think) that it was a plum based sauce. I'd go to the grocery store right now to find out, but it's fixin' to snow here! the stores are Packed with paranoid people buyin' bread and milk! Possibly, different brands use differing ingredients? We'll find out, If i'm wrong, I'll eat Crow! LOL! Watch out Elf Yer probably gonna get snow too! Got milk? Ha ha!!! Atomic Jed!

kyles is absolutely right AJ. Hoison sauce is (essentially) Chinese Barbecue sauce that is made primarily of sooy paste. Plum sauce is a condiment originally made to be eaten with the skin of Peking duck, hence it's other name...duck sauce.

O.K. ...I just got back from the store, now dig this, one brand is based on Prunes! the other was just as bubba, and Kyles said, but I Know (unless I'm losin' it) All the Hoisin sauce I've ever got were Plum based! I'm tearin' my long black hair out over this one!!! And "Duck Sauce" is Apricot, and Peach based. (said the label) Whew, I got some mighty funny looks walkin' in the store with an impending snowstorm, and didn't buy a thing! (just stood there readin' labels!) A.J. is DEDICATED!!! Gotta Love US! Atomic Jed!

Snow Cream Recipe link

Here you go A.J. - it's how we made it growing up. Sometimes my mom would use milk, or whipping cream, or evaporated milk - it just depended on what we had in the house.

Snow Cream

Thanx 4 the recipe Kitchenelf!!! I'm a bit leary of makin' it though, worried about pollutants, trapped in the moisture. Not like when we were kids, a far cleaner planet we had yeah? but if'n I drink a few more of these cans 'o' liquid, I'll try it, maybe add some Hoisin sauce! LOL! Hope you got an omelet! More snow comin'! :D Atomic Jed!

I forget what they say now - I think it's the second day of snow you can eat. The first day sort of "cleaned" the air. I look at it this way. We don't get much snow - Eating a tad bit creates a far greater memory - :-)

It is still peppering down here - quite beautiful but alas, no eggs. I had to have a brunch of sushi - dang -

What's it doing in your area?
