    PaulaG's Note:

    The plums are not peeled; this produces a vibrant ruby-red color. This recipe yields approximately 4-8 ounce jars of jam. This is just the perfect amount for DH and me. A food processor is wonderful for processing the plums and if you don't have a water bath don't worry. A large pasta pot with strainer insert works wonders. The recipe comes from Cooking Pleasures.

      Wonderful jam! I made it in a slow cooker, and it turned out perfect.

      Beautiful purplish color. I like to make with cinnamon instead of allspice.

      I only had 1 lb. of plums but ended with 1 1/2 pts. of jam. Love the flavors. I may have over cooked it as was trying to get it to 221 deg. as written. Very hard this morning to put on toast.
