Plums were $1.99 kg at the markets so with keeping whats in season I decided to make plum jam. I now have enough to last a year.
2kg plums, quartered, and stones removed
1L (4 cups) water
80ml (1/3 cup) lemon juice
1.35kg (6 cups) sugar
Place plums and water in a large saucepan and bring to the boil, reduce to medium and simmer, uncovered for 1 hour.
Add lemon juice and sugar to the pan and stir, without boiling, until sugar dissolved. Increase heat and bring to the boil, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 25-45 mins or until jam sets.
Ladle jam immediately into clean jars.
