Plum Jam


These plums are ripe at the end of Summer,
 and are with us for only a short time.
They are excellent raw and they are even 
better when cooked especially in this plum jam,
my favourite jam.


4 cups chopped ripe plums
3  cups sugar
2  tbsp lemon juice


Wash plums. 

Slice plums in half and remove the pits

Chop up plums.

I remove the pits and put the plums in a food processor.

Pulse a few times to chop up the plums.

Mix the plums, sugar and lemon juice in a deep pan

Let stand 1 hr.

Bring plum mixture to a boil over medium heat,
 stirring often. 
Continue cooking, uncovered and stirring for
 about 20 minutes or until thickened. 
Skim of the foam.

Pour into hot sterilized jars.
This batch makes about 5 jars. 
The batch can also be doubled.
