      I made the recipe for 1 pint cause I had 3-4 black plums to use. It gave me a small amount but that's great since I'm the only one to use jam. It's so yummy. It was my first time tasting plum preserves. Thanks Rita :) Made for I Recommend tag game

      I made as written and to get to a thickening stage I had to cook it for 30 minutes. This has a nice sweetness to it with the sugar and about half of my plums were really ripe. I got 5 1/2 jars so I plan on giving a couple away. Made for All You Can Cook Buffet Tag.

      This was our first attempt at plum preserves, and 5 batches later we are getting pretty good! Great recipe. We did cut back on the sugar a bit, just trying to limit our dietary sugar. We did a 2 to 1 ratio of fruit to sugar. The preserves are wonderfully sweet and tart. Thanks for a great recipe!
