This is now my favorite jam recipe. I've made 3 batches this summer... and have already finished 2 small pots... by myself !!! Rich in flavor.
YUMMY! Processed 30 pints of plum jam and sadly only 5 of these. But, there is a silver linning I have another plum tree ripening. Silver ball says, "More Ginger, Lime Plum Jam in the future". Thank you Rita I really enjoy this flavor.
This was good and very easy to make. I really liked the addition of lime and ginger to the plums. Next time I will reduce the amount of lime and ginger by about 1/3-1/2 as we found the flavors were overpowering.
I made this last summer when Italian prune (plum) tree was full of fruit...I loved the ginger and the lime together with the sweet plums. I made 3 batches of this jam and I think it is different, very good and worth trying.
Really, really tasty jam. Made twice, once with yellow flesh plums, once with prune plums. Halved recipe each time. The ginger and lime is so lively.
I agree with Kittencal - fantastic jam and easy to make. I left the pips in, so I used about 12 - 13 cups of yellow flesh plums. Start removing pips as soon as flesh has softened. It's best to keep stirring jam during this process, so the bottom doesn't burn. I didn't do the boiling water bath. Test jam for consistency on a small plate that has been left in freezer a couple of hours. If it doesn't run everywhere, it's just right!......aquila1317
This is wonderful jam! I just used regular plums and also decreased the grated gingerroot to about 2 tablespoons, also I omitted the dry ginger, thanks Rita!...Kitten:)
