    ellie_'s Note:

    If you are lucky enough to have a plum tree this plum jam is great for holiday gifts. Although these seem time-consuming it is mostly standing time and very little actual working time. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (December 1982)

      I just want to thank you for your easy yummy recipe. My friend bought 6pks bargain plums at £.30/pack usually £1.99 (9plums in pack). Did not know what to do with them luckily i managed to find ur recipe I thought easy enough. So i'm giving you a 5 star rating :-) My only problem was I dont know how to take out the pits without halving the plum. :-(
