About this recipe: Grated ginger adds a nice texture, as well as a gentle spicy flavour to tasty plum jam. I was amazed how easy and quick this jam is. Not much steam in the kitchen or washing up either.
If you are not a fan of ginger, the jam is great without it.
I don't have a microwave so made this in a saucepan and it worked fine. The end result was a wonderful deep red with big chunks of squishy plum. A little bit too sweet for my taste so I would increase the ratio of fruit to sugar next time, I also used slightly more ginger than the recipe suggests (40g) and it was just right (as a former ginger-hater I would say this is not too gingery!). A great combination of flavours. - 17 Dec 2011

I thought this was an excellent recipe - small quantities and very little cleaning up afterwards. The only changes I made were to decrease the sugar to 400g and to double the grated ginger root to 50g. Absolutely delicious! I'd now like to experiment with other fruits to see if I can get the same great results. - 28 Sep 2012
