Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious Plum Jam I too used the old fashioned method of cooking the jam and using the water bath for my jars. This is a delicious plum jam. I made this for my Mother-in-law whose is 93 years old and has fond memories of her grandmother's homemade plum jam!! Tonight will be the test . . . Will it be as good as great great grandma's recipe? We will see!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy, Fast and Delicious Plum Jam I made this plum jam recipe using to cook directions on the pectin package. This is the third online recipe I used for plum jam this year. It was fast and very delicious. The quick boil resulted in a very fresh taste. Definitely my new go-to plum jam recipe.
