About this recipe: Mirabelle plums are a prized variety in France. If you're lucky to find them or have a tree of your own, preserve the flavour with this simply delicious plum jam recipe. Note: As this is a French confiture recipe, it contains more fruit and won't set as much as a regular jam would.


Makes: 4 to 5 jars

  • 1kg ripe mirabelle plums, stones removed and halved
  • 800g jam sugar
  • 1 lemon, juiced

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Extra time:12hr cooling  ›  Ready in:12hr30min 

  1. Place plums, sugar and lemon juice in a large heavy-bottomed pan or casserole. Set over low heat and bring to a gentle simmer, stirring occasionally. Skim off any foam.
