Red Plum Jam 2

Was browsing through some jam/preserves recipes, particularly the methods.  This method seems to be an easy way to make nice jam and I hope the sweetness is acceptable to all.

[makes about 2 bottles x 400 gm]
500-550 gm red plums - washed and seed removed, cut into small pieces
300-350 gm sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice

  1. Place a saucer in the freezer [for testing if jam is ready].
  2. Mix sugar with cut fruits until sugar melts.
  3. Place mixture in a heavy base pot or non-stick pan.  Add in lemon juice.
  4. Bring to a boil then simmer until jam gels up [stir the jam occasionally throughout the cooking].  This takes about 30 minutes.
  5. Spoon a little of jam onto cooled saucer.  Return to freezer for about 3-5 minutes.  If the jam wrinkles up when push with a finger, the jam is ready.
  6. Store jam in sterilised glass container.  Refrigerate jam.

Kimmy, the colour of the plum jam is beautiful! Must be very nice to eat with warm toast and butter :)

Hello Phong Hong, yes it is, I'm very happy with it. The texture is like those imported from Belgium & ...but all ingredients are natural, no additives etc......Very economical, worth making your own.
