Nothing makes one feel more like an old-fashioned kid like balancing while walking across a log and picking fresh fruit from a tree. One of the most underrated fruits of all is the plum. How could we possibly overlook the colors, the smells and the taste of the gorgeous plum? Let us go hipster and bring it back, shall we?
Plum Preserves Recipe
- 3 cups plums, pitted & diced
- 3/4 cup water
- 3 tablespoons pectin
- 3 1/2 cups sugar
Place fruit and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
Stir in pectin, bring to a boil, then stir in sugar. Bring to a boil again and boil for one minute. Place jam in food processor or blender (fit blender lid loosely so hot air can escape). Pulse until the texture you like.
Place in jars and keep in refrigerator until ready to use.
Next up? The tire swing.
