4 pounds ripe purple-skinned plums, pitted and cut into 1-inch pieces (about 24 plums)
1 cup water
3 cups sugar
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons minced peeled fresh ginger
2 (3-inch) strips julienne-cut lemon rind
How to Make It
Combine plums and water in a Dutch oven, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 20 minutes or until tender. Stir in sugar, juice, ginger, and rind. Cook over medium heat 40 minutes, until thick or a candy thermometer reaches 210°. Stir mixture occasionally. (Do not overcook or mixture will scorch.) Cool. Discard lemon rind. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks.
