    I did not use the peels, but just the zest from an orange. I used small golden plums and yellow raisins. I also added 2 ts of pectin to firm it a tiny bit.

    This was great, but a little too sweet. I think the "too sweet" flavor was from the raisins. Next year I will make it with golden raisins. I love the pecans.

    Since it was for the Challenge, I didn't alter the recipe but made it as posted. Very good conserve and easy to prepare. It's quite nutty and the plum flavor is intense. Nice and chunky and not too sweet. Wonderful recipe Rita.I'm sure I'll make it again.
