Plum Apple Jam

I did not want to deprive you of this jam. It really tastes very good. You can taste both the plum and the apple well.

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!

This cake was very moist, fruity and because of the crumble also crunchy.
