Italian plum preserves

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
\N \N Nonstick cooking spray
10 cups Italian plums (or similar freestone plums); chopped and quarter
7 cups Sugar
\N \N Juice of 2 lemons

Spray the insides of the pot with nonstick cooking spray. Combine plums, sugar, and lemon juice in pot. Over medium-low heat, mix well to combine.

Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, removing foam as it forms. Simmer until thick, about 25-35 minutes ( until 220 degrees) , stirring occaisionally. Ladle into hot sterilized jars to within ⅛-inch of jar top. Place lids on and process in boiling water bath 15 minutes.

NOTES : A very luscious jam. It puts commercial plum jam to shame. Try other plums such as Damson, or a combination of plums, for perfect English muffin spread.
