Too sweetOctober 25, 2012 By theresaannef
This was my first time at making jam and canning, so I had no idea what to expect. I had to put food coloring to make it red. The jam is way too sweet. I am not sure I can even eat it. We will see how it tastes with peanut butter. I am going to cut back to 5 cups if I make it again.

plum jamAugust 02, 2012 By topatisland
I used yellow plums and it turned out great with one exception. The amount of sugar needed to be increased by 1 cup. I found 1 tbsp of lemon juice was more than enough. It provided a nice lemony flavour but it can be a touch less.

EasyJune 10, 2012 By timberhillgin
This was my first time at making any kind of jelly. Only thing I did different was I did not peel the plums..We just cut slices off around the pits and ran the fruit through a blender choppingthe peels so fine you never even know they are there. I think it adds a bit of tartness to the flavor. We used fresh from the tree plums. Picked, pitted, cooked, and canned within about 1.5 hrs. Great recipe.

Very easy. Very good.November 13, 2011 By TLGeer
I used this recipe in my first canning experience. It was great! I did change it just a bit, though. I threw a sprig of Rosemary into it while it was cooking, and a couple of shakes of powdered ginger. When I tasted the right amount of Rosemary that I wanted, I took the sprig out and finished cooking the Jam.

Delectable!!!July 27, 2010 By kdta
This plum jam is amazing! So simple to make and such a great way for me to utilize all the plums growing on my three plum trees! I used a red lavender tea instead of water . . . yummy! This was my first time making jam of any kind and it was so easy that I can't wait to jam up more of my plums for holiday gifts. :)

So easyJanuary 10, 2010 By southam1
This is the easiest jam I have ever made. And to top it off it tastes great. The instructions are easy to follow as well. Usually I have a burnt pan after making jam, but not with this one
