"Years ago, when I complained my pear jam was bland, an aunt suggested that I add plum pulp to my next batch," recalls Margaret Zickert from Deerfield, Wisconsin. "I did...and then I won the grand prize in a recipe contest with the thick tasty results!"

- 1 cup chopped or coarsely ground pitted plums
