Plum jam...best in the world
It has always been a favorite here..alittle tart and sweet at the same time. On a nice hot buttered biscuit its just simply fantastic
I also vote for Plum Jam, too! Easy and delicious and can be enjoyed all year round! Have fun with your plums!!
We always made plum jelly or preserves!!! Yummy!!
I used to make plum jelly every Labor Day when we lived in VT. Beautiful purple color!
So there was my decision, now to look for a recipe. I found an easy one from a great book "Rustic Fruit Desserts":
You can use any fruit with this recipe:
2 cups peeled and chopped plums or other fruit
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Put all ingredients in a medium, heavy saucepan and cook over high heat, stir occasionally to avoid any burning on bottom of pan. Skim off any foam that gathers on the surface. Attach a candy thermometer to the side of pan, boil the jam for at least 5 minutes, and until the temperature reaches 221 degrees. Remove from heat and store in a mason jar in the refrigerator. This jam will keep for a few weeks.
