      WOW! What a combination! I must admit I used my own plum jam recipe and just added grated orange rind, but I thought I should give the credit of the flavour combination where it was due! Thanks from New Zealand Lennie!

      I can't believe I forgot to review this. This is WONDERFUL! Now, I must admit that I did not make this as a microwave recipe. Instead, I altered it to the stove top method that comes with the bottle of pectin. I still went with the measurements that are included here. This is my new favourite jam! Perfect! I can't wait to make this again next year! Thank you SO much for posting!
