Copilarim's Plum Jam (only Fruit and Sugar)

About: Hi!! I really like challenges and handmade so here i am:). I also like childhood - this is were from i got the name of my blog (my real name is Ruxandra, or Rux - as i'm usually called:P).

Hi!!:) I wanted to make a step by step instructable, but it seems i'm more familiar with the photo one:). So here you go!!

I love plum jam (it's pretty much my fave of all). My grand'ma tought me how to do it and since i've done a lot of it last year i've made some pictures to share with you.

This is what you need:
- 3 kg plums
- 1 kg sugar
- clean jars

First step: is to wash the plums really really good.

Second step: you have to peel them off (if the skin doesn't go off easily you can put them into boiling water for less than a minute and take them out and peel them:P - be cautious not to get burnt). I had no need to boil them because with these plums you can take off the skin really easy and pretty fast. Cut the plums and remove the pits.

Third step: put the plums into the heavy bottomed pan and pour the sugar on top of it. On a low fire you have to mix the fruits and the sugar with the wooden spoon until the sugar melts. After that you have to turn the fire on and boil the jam, stirring with the wooden spoon. Be cautious because it can splash you and it's really hot. It can take up to two hours until it's ready. I know it;s ready when i can see the buttom of the pan while i stir with the wooden spoon.

When the jam is ready i put a stainless plate under the jar and pour the jam using the wooden spoon into the jar. Than i cover the jar and put a label on it and that's it:D!!

Tnx! I  hope you like this (i love the jam:D) and i'll write some notes also on the photos.

    Bravo Ruxandra ! Sa stie si altii ce gust bun are magiunul sau silvoizul sau gemul copilariei noastre! Am admirat impreuna cu fiica mea toate papusile tale si crede ca sunt intr-adevar minunate.( ea este casatorita cu un japonez din apropierea Sendaiului; cunoaste destule despre ei si lucrurile lor minunate si iti admira mult papusile). Te pup si-ti doresc toate cele bune. Servus!

    Multumesc frumos!! Adevarul este ca si prunele fac diferenta...:)
    Ma bucur ca v-au placut papuselele (si eu admir cultura japoneza.. ma fascineaza).
    Va multumesc din nou, pentru ca mi-ati infrumusetat ziua:)
    ps: si ador forma aceasta de salut pentru ca imi aminteste de copilarie si momentele minunate petrecute la bunici, in Ardeal.
