Greek Plum Jam

From the September 26, 2008 Athens' Plus magazine. Plums are one of my favorite fruits (I like pluots too - a hybrid of plums and apricots) This listed the yield as "2 jars" but the pictured jar looks about 1/2 the size of a Mason jar. This recipe listed "1 wine glass of brandy" but thanks to Evelyn/Athens conversions here:http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=220845, I'm listing this as 225 mL. Cook time is a guess.

ingredients

directions

  • Wash the fruit well, remove the stones and slice the fruit.
  • Peel and grate the apples.
  • Boil the sugar and cinnamon sticks in a saucepan with 5 cups of water.
  • When it begins to form a syrup, add the fruit to the pan and allow to boil, stirring occasionally so the mixture doesn’t stick to the pan.
  • When it thickens and forms bubbles on the surface, remove a spoonful and put it onto a dry white plate, cool quickly and draw the tip of a spoon across it – if it leaves a path, then the jam is ready.
  • Add the lemon juice and brandy (if desired) and mix for two more minutes.
  • Remove from the heat, discard the cinnamon sticks and fill the jars, which have been boiled and drained thoroughly.
  • Close the jars firmly and turn upside down until cool.
