How to Make Plum Jam
- Add the prepared plums to a large pot, cover the plums with water, then turn the heat on high and add the sugar; slowly mixing until the sugar is dissolved.
- Once the water starts to boil, stop stirring. Now add the lemon juice and zest and lower the temperature to medium and allow to cook for 20 minutes.
- If a foam has formed, ignore it, it will be absorbed into the jam.
- Now lower the temperature to low, cover and simmer for 25 minutes.
It will set as it cools. Once it is cool enough to work with, pour into a sterilized glass jar, cover and place in the fridge.
