Plum Jam

Our neighbour gave us a big bag of plums the other day. They were quite ripe and we weren’t eating enough of them so I made some plum jam. This turned out so beautifully and was so easy. Love the dark red colour.

2.7kg Plums
1 1/4 cups water
2kg Sugar

Roughly chop plums. Add water and cook slowly in a large pot until fruit is pulpy. Add sugar and stir until dissolved then bring to the boil and boil rapidly for about 15 minutes. Stones will rise to the surface and you can pick them out while cooking with a slotted spoon. Test for setting by dropping a small amount of jam on a cold plate. Draw your finger through the jam and if a channel is formed and stays, then the jam will set.  Pour into jars. Yum.
