I've just today made this jam and it is tasty! A nice Christmassy plum jam, it's worth making even if you are like me and already have plum jam leftover from last year! Made about 4 normal jam jars. If I can get more plums I'm going to make more. It's adapted from a recipe I found online.

Plummy Winter Jam

1 kilo plums
1 kilo sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
a pinch of cayenne pepper
Juice of 1 lemon

Clean and pit plums, slice them in quarters. Cook together with spices and lemon juice - bring to boil then boil slowly for 15min. Mash if you want a smoother jam (I very briefly used a stick mixer so I still had some lumpy bits but it was more smooth than normal). Add sugar and bring to boil again. Once boiling, simmer for about 25 min till jam is setting (I had a thermometer and once it got to 220F it was at setting point). Process in sterilized jars for jam.

If you have any left over fresh plums. why not make a fruit tart!
125g unsalted butter
150g caster sugar
2 eggs plus one extra egg yolk
60ml brandy
2 tbsp plain flour
200g ground almonds
600g ripe plums, halved
2 tsp milk
Sour Cream Pastry:
200g chilled, unsalted butter - chopped
300g plain flour
80g sour cream.
For the pastry, pulse the butter, flour and a pinch of salt in processor till it is like breadcrumbs. Add sour cream and pulse till dough comes together in a ball. Wrap in glad wrap and chill for 20 mins.
Place butter and caster sugar in processor and whizz for 5-6 mins. scraping down side of bowl as you go. Once it is thick and pale, add eggs, one at a time, whizzing well after each addition. Add the brandy and whizz for 1 minute to combine. Add flour and almond and pulse to combine. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Roll out the pastry on a floured surface into a circle about 30cm in diameter and about 5mm thick. Place on the tray or a pizza tray. Spread almond meal mix over tart base, leaving a 5cm border. Arrange plums on top,cut side down. Fold over pastry edge to meet the filling and gently press down to seal. Chill for 20 mins. Preheat oven to 190C Beat the egg yolk,milk and pinch of salt together with a fork, then brush over the pastry edges. Bake for 40-45 mins until pastry is golden and plums are soft. Dust with caster sugar, cut into slices and serve while warm.

yummm! fantastic recipes thank you so much.

Oh - I forgot, I also added 1/2 cup water to the fruit when first boiling. I don't suppose it matters too much as I guess the water evaporates during the whole process.

Plum and Chilli Sauce

3 kilos dark plums, washed, halved and stoned (firm plums are best),
1.5 litres (6 cups)  white vinegar,
1 1/2 teaspoons salt, 
1 tablespoon  crushed garlic, 
1 1/2 teaspoons  crushed dried chilli, 
1 teaspoon  ground cloves, 
1 1/2 teaspoons  ground ginger, 
1 teaspoon of ground allspice, 
1.5 kilos white sugar.

Place the fruit, salt, garlic, chilli and vinegar into the pan and bring to the simmer, cooking until the fruit is pulpy. Place the spices into a small bowl and mix to a paste with a small quantity of vinegar then add to the fruit in the pan. Add the sugar and stir until it is dissolved and the sauce reaches a rolling boil. Boil, stirring frequently for at least 30 minutes and the sauce thickens slightly.

Artlcies like this are an example of quick, helpful answers.

It is not that simple.How many fresh food has chmaicels on it? How about GMO products like soy? How about the fact that people WASTE their diets by too much eat (I eat zero) and MILK (total waste in the diet)? Milk is the only product that the industry has dictated its content about being necessary. Humans are the only species that drinks milk after the early months of a child or young.It is just sad.
