Plum jam

A friend and I found ourselves with a kiddy pool full of plums last weekend, so we decided to make jam.

We had never done this before, so we kind of wung it. I am writing down what we did so we don’t forget and can make it better next time.

  • 3 lb plums (not sure what kind; see photos. I think they’re called Italian or prune plums. Or is it Italian prune plums?)
  • 1-1/2 lb white sugar (next time I would put only 1 lb)
  • 4-5 tbsp bottled lemon juice (next time I would use fresh)
  • 2 cinnamon sticks thrown in near the end of cooking
  • 1 6-oz. pouch Certo liquid fruit pectin (next time I would put much less)
  1. Cut plums in half and remove pits. image
  2. Put plums in large dutch oven.
  3. Add sugar.image
  4. Stir.
  5. Let sit for an hour to macerate.
  6. Simmer over medium heat. Add lemon juice.image

  7. When it looks like jam, add the cinnamon and pectin.image
  8. Remove from heat. Let cool somewhat so you don’t burn yourself on the next step.
  9. Run through a food mill to get bits out.image

  10. Can (I can’t tell you anything about canning).

The jam became very solid in the fridge, but it tastes fantastic. Also makes amazing fruit leather.
