You Make It Easy

Plum Jam

 

A pectin free easy recipe! Great for a fall gift or even saved for a sweet treat in the winter.

The importance of this recipe is patience and the fact that it is pectin free.

(Pectin Рchemically, pectin consists of partial methyl esters of polygalacturonic acids and their salts Рsodium, potassium, calcium and ammonia)

WOAHH! I don’t want to put that into this lovely jam that I will be passing out to family members and friends … so we didn’t!

& this is how you can too!

Somewhere in-between those steps and a large dash of orange juice!
