  • Plum to Plum Jam

    PLUM TREE


    PLUM FRUITS


    TO PLUM JAM



    Plum Jam (I FOUND THIS RECIPE ONLINE FROM SUREJELL.COM)






    6 cups prepared fruit (about 4 lb. fully ripe plums)


    1/2 cup water


    1 box SURE.JELL Fruit Pectin


    1/2 tsp. butter or margarine


    8 cups sugar, measured into separate bowl (See tip below.)






    BRING boiling-water canner, half-full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain well before filling.


    PIT plums. Do not peel. Finely chop or grind fruit. Place fruit in saucepan; add water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 5 min. Measure exactly 6 cups prepared fruit into 6- or 8-qt. saucepot.


    STIR pectin into fruit in saucepot. Add butter to reduce foaming. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.


    LADLE immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/8 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches; add boiling water if needed.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 10 min. Remove jars and place upright on a towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middles of lids with finger. (If lid springs back, lid is not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)

    KA,

    this is what I miss being in the NowrthWest. Italian Plums . They grow everywhere . I and my husband used to hike down the gulley along Beverly Lane in Everett, there was a plum tree full of fruits . I made lots of jam too .

      KA: your plum would be great to make Plum Tart.

      Spread the dough about 1/2 inch thick to cover the whole baking tray, then line the dough with sliced plum (or halves), then sprinkle some granulated sugar; bake; let cool then cut into squares; sprinkle with confect. sugar.

      Great with tea.
