Plum & Ginger jam
1 & 1/4th
Wash and clean plums , pat dry them.
Remove their pits, Chop into small pieces.
In a heavy bottom sauce pan combine chopped plums, ginger and sugar.
Keep the flame high for 3-4 minutes, then lower the flame.
Cook for 10 minutes, then mash the plums with a potato masher.
You will get lot of foam forming on the jam, remove them with a metal spoon.
Cook for 5 minutes more by stirring occasionally.
Otherwise jam may stick to the bottom of the pan, which may lead you a tasteless jam.
Cook till the mixture thickens , it may take 5-7 minutes more.
When the jam reaches in desired consistancy and cling to the spoon, falling up in clums , squeeze out the lemon juice.
Give a nice mix & switch off the flame.
Now spoon the jam in a clean sterilized bottle leaving about a 1/2″ headspace.
your homemade plum jam is ready.
If you dont want to add ginger to the jam , you may skip adding it.
Add less sugar (about 1 cup) if your plums are sweet.
Refregerate the jam and use within one month.
If you wish you can remove the peels of the plum with a fork while cooking.
