I'm taking my kitchen paperless (at least as far as non-bound recipes go) so welcome to my cookbook in a blog!

Spiced Plum Jam

Spiced Plum Jam from food in jars
Makes 4 1-pint jars

8 C pitted and finely chopped plums (about 4 pounds)
3 1/2C sugar
zest and juice of 1 lemon
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
2 (3-oz) packets liquid pectin

Prepare jars and lids.

Combine plums and sugar in large pot.  Stir and bring to a boil.

Add lemon zest and juice, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.  Continue to cook over high heat for 15-20 minutes until molten and really syrupy.

Add pectin and bring to rolling boil for a full 5 minutes.  Once done it will look thick and shiny.

Remove from heat and ladle into jars.  Process in water for 10 minutes.
