When I share this slightly sweet jam with family and friends, it disappears quickly. Through the years, I've learned to make more than one batch!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 13, 2013

We have a Plum tree in our back yard that makes a huge amount of Plums and I thought I would try making Jam out of them. This recipe is great and the only thing I did different was to use a hand mixer and crush up the Plums before I cooked it. I'm not a huge fan of chunks of fruit do this turned out great for me. I am going to make more because everyone is asking for some!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 23, 2009

This was the first recipe I tried for jam in over 10 years. It was not a let down. I went on to make 3 more batches. I changed one thing. I used the plum, skin and all. I threw it in the blender and pureed. Thanks.
