Spiced Plum Sauce

Plums are so Delicious!, says my hubby. Yeah, I am not much of a fruit lover and very choosy about them. But, when it comes to plums, I always wanted to use that fruit as a core ingredient in my meat or dessert in someway. And, today I finally decided on trying my hands on this gorgeously looking fruit, which I never had before today :). While I prefer my plum sauce smooth, others would like it to be chunkier (in that case you would just want to mash it up with your fork, while it simmers in the stove).
