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 – chemically, pectin consists of partial methyl esters of polygalacturonic acids and their salts – sodium, 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!
Three handfuls of ripe plums
(prepare for a mess)
Take pits out and leave the skin on
Place remaining plum mess into a large pot on medium/high heat
Bring plums to a boil & add a cup of all natural sugar
REPEAT THIS STEP THREE TIMES
Somewhere in-between those steps and a large dash of orange juice!
Smoosh all ingredients together and let sit while covered on the stove for 12 hours.
DON’T EVEN THINK OF TOUCHING THE MIX A SECOND SOONER!

repeat the simmer
let cool for 12 hours
