I made Jam
I thought I would share the recipe with you...
2kg of plums
1.5 kg of caster sugar
2 tbs lemon juice.
1 cup water
Cut all plums in half and remove the seed. Put all the plums in a big saucepan and cover with water. When fruit is soft, gradually add sugar and stir until dissolved. Turn up heat and boil for at least 45 minutes until the fruit is thick. Test jam on a chilled plate by placing a teaspoon of jam on the plate and tip it, if the jam is runny boil mixture a bit longer.
Pour into prepared jars and seal lids. It will keep in the cupboard for up to 1 year.
I was going to sew tonight but I'm too pooped so I think I'll just sit and stitch in front of the tele.
I hope you enjoy your evening.
