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.

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.
