    mary winecoff's Note:

    This quick and easy jam makes only 2 1/2 cups. It makes a wonderful glaze for oven-roasted salmon. 3 cups of plums is about 10-12 plums. This recipe comes from the book Small Batch Preserving by Topp and Howard.

      This has great taste. I did substitute fresh ginger instead. It was also my first time making jam in the microwave and it never did gel. That's ok because I'll use it as a sauce for pork and chicken.

      Excellent no fuss jam! I had loads of plums to use up, so I ended up with a mix of Aussiebelle, Tegan Blue, Angelino and Mid Red plums, which I peeled, so the colour came out a bit more of a golden orange than the red/purple of the recipe. Very tasty! Thanks Mary!
