Plum Jam

[quote="Audeo"]Hmmmm..... Sorry, Charlie! Seems like you've got some sour plums on your hands there!

Alternatively and much easier, using one jar at a time, I would empty a jar into a saucepan and add about 1/4 cup of sugar (taste the stuff to see if you need more, which I would doubt), bring it to a slow boil as above and return to a steralized jar to be kept in the fridge for no more than a couple of weeks.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Yes, I will take the short way, One jar at a time. I still have 2 packages, about 8 cups, to can. I've given up on the crabapple juice, although I did use it in the first batch. I may try a batch of freezer jam. I did some strawberries as freezer jam and it was GREAT!

I'm eaithg out of a jar that I didn't process. Once you get over the inital tartness it isn't too bad on pancakes. :D

Thanks for your coments!

I haven't made this yet :oops: Too many new toys for
Christmas!
I gave a couple jars of the cooked batch to some friends. They said it was GREAT!

I don't know if they were being kind or they really liked it.
I was trying to see if it needed recooking with more sugar.
I'll make a point to do the freezer jam within the next two weeks :)
