Rich Red Plum Jam Recipe
2 pounds red plums, pitted and chopped
1/2 cup water
2 cups granulated sugar
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Divide plums halves into two equal portions. In a non-reactive mixing bowl, mix first group of plum halves with 1 pound 4 ounces of sugar. Cut the remaining plum halves in half to make quarters. In a separate bowl, mix plum quarters with remaining 12 ounces sugar. Cover both bowls tightly and let stand at room temperature overnight.
