Bring it to the boil again and add a little lemon juice or you can buy Jam setting agent from the supermarket. Were the plums too ripe!
A knob of butter added to the jam when you have finished cooking it gets rid of the fluffy stuff on top and around the edges in the pan then let it cool a little before putting into the sterilised warm jars. Good luck.

oops, forgot to add, best to test that it will set by dropping a small teaspoonful onto a saucer of cold water and if it gels nicely it is done.
