Red Plum Jam

Yield 4 1/2 pints


  • 8 cups coarsely chopped red plums
  • 1 (1 3/4-ounce) package powdered fruit pectin
  • 8 cups sugar

How to Make It

  1. Combine plum pulp and fruit pectin in a Dutch oven. Bring to a boil; cook 1 minute. Stir in sugar; return to a boil. Reduce heat; cook 30 minutes, stirring frequently, or until jam thickens and reaches desired consistency. Skim off foam with a metal spoon; discard.

  2. Ladle jam into hot, sterilized jars, leaving 1/4-inch head space; cover at once with metal lids, and screw bands tight. Process in a boiling-water bath 10 minutes.
