I like the word plum and I like plums. So I was thinking of doing a plum chutney but I was feeling a little spiced out. One thing I am really starting to learn is to can what is in season, right now it's citrus so my next can jam will include some citrus:-)
3 pints or 6 half pints
16 plums chopped into 1/2 inch cubes (about 6 cups)
3 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup sugar
1 package of pectin
Combine chopped plums, lemon juice, and pectin into 5 quart pot. Cook over medium heat until the plums start to sweat and get all juicy. Once softened add 1/2 cup of water and bring to a boil. Once boiling dump the sugar and honey in. Give it a good stir and then let jam reduce to thick consistency. Take sterilized jars and fill with hot jam and process for at least 10 mins (if at sea level).
