Anyone makes list here?
For Plums, I took the easiest way out. It is the easiest recipe I have ever worked with. And the results were amazing.
- 12-14 Ripe Plums, Quartered and pitted
- 1/4 cup Packed Brown Sugar
- 1 Cinnamon stick
- 1 Tsp Cardamom seeds - crushed
- Lemon Peels ( you can use zest)
Toss sugar and plums together in a large pot.
Let it stand for an hour or so until all juices are released.
Add Cardamom, cinnamon and lemon peels and put it on medium flame to boil.
Once you reach a boil, put the pot on slow flame and let it simmer for about 30 mins. Stirring occasionally.
Continue to let the syrup simmer until thickened.
Remove from heat and let it rest for 30 – 40 mins.
Repeat boil on medium and simmer on slow flame until the syrup thickens.
Let the jam cool before pouring into sterilize jars.
To sterilize jars:
Wash the jars and preheat the oven to 160 degree C. Keep the jars in oven for a
bout 20 minutes.
Do Not pour hot jam in cold jars. The glass will shatter. Seal jars when they both reach room temperature.
