This morning I made the Plum & Blueberry jam. The plums were gleaned from the kid's yard and the blueberries were from my back yard. This is another delicious jam, the combination of plum and blueberry is bright.
Plums and blueberries have a great deal of natural pectin, and no additional pectin is required for the jam.
Plum and Blueberry Jam

3 c plum puree

juice of 1 lemon
6 c sugar

You will know that the jelling has begun, the foam around the edge of the pan will begin to cook away. At this point you will need to pay close attention to the mixture, stir constantly until the desired thickness is achieved. Remember that the mixture will thicken upon cooling.
If you are new to jam making, place a plate in the freezer, drop a teaspoon of jam on the frozen plate to cool instantly and you will know how thick it will be when chilled.
Ladle into jars, cap and process for 15 minutes in a gently boiling water bath. Let cool completely before storing away.
