Tkemali (Georgian: ტყემალი) is the Georgian name for
the cherry plum, as well as a sauce made of cherry plums. Tkemali is
made from both red and green varieties of plum. The flavor of the sauce
varies between sweet and pungently tart. To lower the tartness level,
occasionally sweeter types of plums are added during preparation.
Traditionally the following ingredients are used besides plum: garlic,
pennyroyal, cilantro, dill, cayenne pepper and salt.
