Plum jam


Another lovely recipe from Okashi - Keiko Ishida , I really love this book . Jam is actually not my thing but this plum jam changes it all . The taste is just right ,not so sweet that you can still taste the sour from the the plum . Yummy !

Recipe : ( Okashi- the sweet treats made with love ) . I did some addition to the original one .
Ingredients :
- 500g red plum
- 250g caster sugar
- Extract juice from 1 lemon
- 1/2 tsp pectin powder
Method :
Deseed plums and place in a saucepan . Add sugar and lemon juice , bring to a boil , skimming of scum that floats to the surface . Reduce heat and leave to simmer for about 1 hour over low heat , stirring occasionally , until volume has reduced by 3/5 .Add in pectin powder and cook for 10 mins further . Fill sterilised jam jars with hot jam and seal tightly .
