EZ Homemade Red Plums Jam

Came across red plums on offer [RM 8.50/kg] at the supermart, so I bought extra to prepare this jam.  It is not difficult to make this bread spread or preserves.  I probably will use it to bake chiffon cake like I used Mango and Passion fruit jam.  Think it should be lovely.  If it turns out well, I will share the recipe with you.

[makes 2 bottles x 400 gm]
500 gm red plums - seeded and chopped finely
1 Royal Gala apple - peeled and chopped finely [I use a grater]
Rind of 1 lemon
Juice of 1/2 lemon
250 gm sugar
150 ml water

Simmering jam

  1. Place all ingredients [except sugar] in a pan.  Bring it to a boil and lower heat to cook until fruits are softened and water reduced.
  2. Add in sugar and continue to simmer.  Stir occasionally to mix ingredients well.  In the meantime, place a small saucer in the freezer to chill [for testing if jam is ready].  Simmer until it gels up.  Place a teaspoon of jam on saucer.  Leave in fridge for a few minutes and jam should be ready if it forms a mass.
  3. Store in sterilised airtight bottles.  Always refrigerate jam as homemade jams are without preservatives.
