From Scratching: Plum Jam
This is the canning recipe that really sealed my current obsession with canning (pun intended). I went on a @NFFTT plum pick and came home with a huge bag of small under-ripe plums. There really was no choice except to make jam.
2 cups pitted, quartered plums (skin on)
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice (used bottled)
Combine on the stove. Once the sugar melts and starts to boil start at timer for 15 - 20 minutes. At 15 minutes, start to test for jell. Process for 10 minutes.
Makes: 3 x 125 mL jars

Total Jars Canned: 5 pints
