Black plums are the best for this aromatic jam. In America the season is long through summer and fall. By using a small quantity of my favorite sweetener, Truvia you end up with 95 % fruit. 2 ingredients, no preservatives! Makes 2 ⅓ cups, 38 servings.



  • Wash plums.

  • Remove kernels, and quarter the fruit. Place plum pieces into a wide pot.

  • Mix in Truvia.

  • Cook the fruit, stirring occasionally for 30 minutes. Keep an eye on the jam, so it does not burn.

  • If the plums are still chunky after this time, mash them in the pot with a wire masher, and cook the plums 10 minutes longer, stirring frequently.
  • Pour hot jam in clean jars, cover.

  • Bundle jars in a blanket for a minimum of half day to cool slowly. It keeps the heat on, hence improves the preservation process.

Notes & Ingredients

If you have super ripe plums from a farmer, no need to add anything to it! The plums have enough fructose, and one just cooks them long and slowly.. Keep jars in a cool place. After opening one, store it in the fridge.
