Ingredients

How to make it

  • In large dutch oven or similar pan, add juices and then add plums, cut side down.
  • Heat over medium heat until boiling then reduce heat to a high simmer for about 30 minutes, pressing often with a large fork or a potato masher to release the plum juices and soften the skin.
  • (at this point, remove the pits from the pan and if there are larger pieces of skin. I didn't remove any of the skin, at all. I left it in and it just gave it a slightly rustic texture in the end product. It wasn't chewy or fibrous and there were only very small pieces. I loved the lil hint of tartness it gave, but feel free to remove it if you'd like :)
  • Add honey and vanilla and stir well.
  • Continue to heat another 10-15 minutes.
  • You can test the spread by dipping a COLD spoon in the mixture and lift it up. Run a finger down the back side of the spoon. If the "track" you make, remains, it's done! :)
  • Serve on toast, biscuits, waffles, etc.

    This worked PERFECTLY!!! It thickened up SO nicely and I left the skin on and had NO problem with it! There is no textural issue whatsoever! The sweetness is spot on too! I used a cranberry strawberry juice in mine and it worked out great! Beautiful color too! Thanks you so much Keni! A link to the IMI post -------> Easy Plum Spread

    I'm so glad you have a jam recipe that doesn't use gelatin. For some stupid reason, whenever I try to use it, the planet explodes. Weird, I can't explain it.
