Recipe by CulinaryQueen
READY IN: 1hr 30mins
YIELD: 6 pounds




  • Halve the plums and remove the pits if possible -- if the plums are very firm then leave the pits in to prevent wasting any flesh. In this case, allow 2 1/4 lbs. in weight.
  • Cut the peeled and cored apples into small dice. Peel and chop the onions. Peel and mince the garlic.
  • Put the plums, apples, onion and garlic into the pan with 1 1/4 cup vinegar, mixed spice, curry, ginger and cinnamon.
  • Simmer gently until the fruits are soft. Remove the plum pits (if necessary)at this point.
  • Add the sultanas, sugar and remaining 1 1/4 cup of vinegar. Stir over low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Boil steadily until the consistency of a thick jam, stirring occasionally.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste, then spoon into the hot jars and seal down.
