I love plum jam, and also use damsons for this plum jam recipe.
A delicious fruit jam, known as plum butter, to spread on warm bread, toast or scones. You can also use it to sandwich a sponge cake. A lovely way to preserve the flavour of local plums for enjoyment year-round.
An easy jam for first-timers. Once you taste home-made you'll never buy store-bought again! The colour depends on the variety of the plums you use - the above picture used English Victoria plums, yellow/light skins. Red plums produce red jam, dark plums produce a darker jam. The taste is the same.
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.
This recipe will give you a wonderful tart, yet flavoursome preserve-like jam. It's rich in fruit and lightly fragranced with the flowery aroma of cardamom. You can use this jam on biscuits, waffles, pancakes, bread or straight out of the jar with a spoon.
