Plum Butter

Share

Cook slowly and stir often so it doesn’t burn. Makes 3 ˝ cups of jam.


Ingredients

3-4 lb. Ripe plums
10 cloves
1 cinnamon stick

Procedure

Wash & ˝“ chop plums, removing stone. Place in heavy pan with a little water (up to ˝ cup).

Bring to a boil, stirring. Add cinnamon stick & cloves. Boil gently for 3+ hours, stirring often.

Sieve to remove skins and spices. Bring back to a boil, still stirring, until reduced. Check by pouring a few drops on a cold plate (it should flow slowly if tilted). If too runny cook further.

When done, ladle into clean preserving jars, seal & boil 5 minutes to seal. Remove & invert on towel until cool. Check vaccuum seal & store.
