Plum Jam THM-E

This is a great time of the year when orchard begin to give of their bounty. Plums are a delicious tart/sweet fruit and we enjoy them picked ripe from the trees. This Plum Jam features four kitchen staple ingredients and has a wonderful flavor. I use unflavored gelatin in almost all of the jams I make and they store very well. The jam will need to be refrigerated to thicken. This evening I found my teenage son eating the jam from the jar by the spoonfuls! That’s just how good it is.

Combine pureed plums and Gentle Sweet in a saucepan over medium heat. Soften gelatin in water for 5 minutes. Set aside. Bring plums mixture to a gentle boil for 3 minutes. Add softened gelatin. Whisk well. Bring to a boil. Pour into prepared jars. Add lids and rings and seal. 3 1-cup jars of jam. **I use a hand blender to puree the plums. This jam needs to be refrigerated to set properly with gelatin. I prefer a thicker jam and my recipe reflects that. If you want a softer set use just 1 tablespoon gelatin. I store the jars in my fridge after they are sealed.

This jam can be hot water bathed to keep it shelf stable. Place jars in a canner with 1 inch water covering the top of the jars. Bring to a gentle boil for 10 minutes. Remove from the canner and allow to cool.

My mother made sure we had a good quality kettle set when we got married. This is very similar to the one I have been using for 30+ years.
