Tkemali made with green plums

 
 

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.

Tkemali is used for fried or grilled meat, poultry and potato dishes much like ketchup is used in the West. It can be made at home, but is also mass produced by several Georgian and Russian companies.
