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!

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.
