Roasted Plum Jam

Plum Jam is an easy recipe that is elevated in a wonderful way by roasting the plums. Beginners can easily succeed with this canning recipe and the roasting plums make your home smell heavenly.

Prep
Cook
Serves 10people
Ingredients
4
lb plums, pitted and diced
2
cup sugar
3
tbs lemon juice
1
tbs spice- Canning for a New Generation suggests cardamom but I used cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg and it was divine
Directions
1.
Place the diced plums in a wide, oven safe pan and fill with just enough water to almost cover. Roast at 400 degrees, stirring often, until the fruit is very fragrant, the water is mostly cooked away, and the fruit is broken down. This is the part that makes your house smell heavenly. I can’t say I have had another cooking experience like this one and I hope you find it as wonderful as I did.
2.
When the fruit is cooled a bit, ladle into a food mill and process to remove skins. Alternatively, press through a sieve. I have read that you could process in a blender but I have never done it that way though I bet it would work.
3.
Add the lemon juice, sugar, and spice to the plums in a wide preserving pan. Simmer, stirring often, for about 20 minutes or until it is thickened significantly. Ladle the hot jam into hot, sterilized jars following safe canning practice outlined in the USDA site or in the introduction of any good canning book. Leave ¼ inch headspace, add lids and rings, and process in a water bath for 5 minutes to process. Add 5 minutes processing time for every 1000 feet of elevation above sea level. Remove to a towel on a countertop and leave undisturbed for 12 hours. Label and store.
