Plum Jam

Our plum tree has had so many fruit this summer, and as R is in NYC for work for a few weeks, there is no way I could eat them all. And I've given pounds of them away to friends already. So I made jam.


 4.5 cups pitted plums
3 cups sugar
juice of 1/4 lemon

I'm still working on my mosaic yoke jacket, but I made it too small - usually the smallest size is still too big for me, but not this time. So I had to undo everything but the sleeves. I'll come back to it...

In the meantime, this is my new project...

Oh yum! I've never tried to make jam. Do you feel all domestic? I'm very impressed.

You make it sound as if jam making were so easy. :) Sorry about the mosaic jacket. Good that you're carrying on with it!
