Tastes good on Scones!

Plum Apple Jam
  • 500 g plums (pitted)
  • 500 g apples (cored and peeled)
  • 500 g jam sugar 2:1
  1. Mix plums, apples and sugar in a big pot and let to rest for 1 hour.

  2. Bring mixture to boil until soft and blend.

  3. Let boil some more minutes.

  4. Fill jam in hot, clean jars. (Carefully, very HOT!!)

  5. Close the jars with lid instantly.

  • The pot has to be big, because the boiling jam will rise and boil over.
  • Jars have to be very clean. I place the jars in the sink and pour boiling water over.
  • I pour the hot jam in a 1-litre jug, it’s then easier and cleaner to fill in the jars.
  • Careful! The jam is really hot!

Surprisingly this apple cake is not really known in Germany. In Bavaria they would call it apple strudel, but its not an apple strudel. The apple strudel is more a long drawn-out dough.
