Plum Preserves.

So, this year we had quite the plum harvest. Not really quite knowing what to do with the plums, we opted for plum preserves. We had about 7kg, aprox 15 lbs of plums and ended up making quite a bit of the preserves! It turned out great!


1 to one ratio of sliced plums to sugar - e.g. 5 lb plums to 5 lb sugar


1. Cover sliced plums with sugar. No need to mix, just let it sit overnight to produce to the syrup.
2. Separate the syrup and plums the next morning and put the syrup into a large pot.
3. Bring syrup to a boil, just until sugar dissolves. Add plums.
4. Let sit for a few hours.
5. Bring to a boil and let cool a few times, this can be done over the course of several days Remove the "foam" every time. You may eat the foam, some people enjoy it more than the actual preserves :)
6. Before canning, bring to a slow boil, on the lowest setting and can while the liquid is hot.
7.  Sterilize the jars & can!
