I haven’t quite yet, but I am however enjoying this jam that I made last summer. I’m relatively new to canning. I didn’t grow up in a house where canning was an annual tradition. I love the idea of it, so I decided to hit up friends for tips and of course youtube videos for tutorials and taught myself. After the first successful batch I fell in LOVE with the idea of canning. In fact, I wanted to can just about anything I could get my hands on! I’m really excited that this year our garden is flourishing so I hope to can many more things this season. Stay tuned. I’ll keep you posted.

Ingredients
  1. 6 c. plums, pitted and chopped
  2. 3/4 c. water
  3. 7 c. sugar
  4. 1 tbsp lemon juice
  5. 1 (1 3/4 oz) package dry pectin
Instructions
  1. Prep your plums by washing them well to remove any debris or dirt. Cut in half to easily remove the pit.
  2. Combine plums, water, lemon juice, and pectin in a large sauce pot. Bring to a rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Add sugar; return to a rolling boil. Be careful of any splatters, it will be very hot - and the sugary mixture will burn you easily.
  3. Boil hard 1 minute, stirring constantly. Pour hot liquid into hot jars, leaving 1/4" head space. Adjust caps. Process 10 minutes in boiling water bath.
Notes
  1. [My 2 Cents]
  2. This recipe has A LOT of sugar. Since making it last fall, I've changed my ways and have tried to eliminate refined sugars in my diet. I plan to re-visit plum jam and provide a no/low sugar recipe for you sometime in the future. Watch for that!

      It is very delicious… and VERY sweet!! Thank you so much for the compliment! I have to give credit to my talented husband, he’s been taking most of my picts for me 🙂

      You know, until last summer I don’t think I’d tried it before either. But I had some friends that had a plum tree and let me pick as many as I wanted so I thought I would give it a go: success!
