Plum Jam.....home made!
« on: September 04, 2019, 11:09:54 PM »
Our plum tree produced a few plums this year, inspired me to make my own plum jam for the first time! It's still cooling off,  however I'd some on toast for supper,  despite stirring it for about 3 hours,  it tastes bloody lovely,  we've about 5 litres of it!   :D

The important thing with plum jam is to slightly "burn" it. So it receives that dark colour.
Made a dozen glasses this year too (still had some from past year). Kids love it.

Also made some plum wine which partially gets distilled into slivovice ;-)

Depends on your tastes. Burning can make it bitter. i'm more a sweet kind a guy :)

hmmm it should not burn to coal ;-)
I burn in it a way that a spoon could still free it from the jar/pan/pot without too much hassle.

At least it is not "bitter" (while the orange jam I do is a bit bitter as I keep a bit of the white from the peel).

BTW I also prefer if the plums are still not too ripe (so they are kind of "stiff" instead of "soft"). So they keep a bit of soureness instead of being sweet all over the place.


PS: seems regardless of how we cook our jam we agree to one thing: it tastes ;-)

PPS: Do you now add a plum monster to your game?  :P
