Can anyone recommend any good sites to look for plum jam and bottling plums, etc. Has anyone done plum jam with ginger? It sounds nice but I'm not sure how much ginger is needed. My plums are ripening already - much earlier than last year. Woud be grateful of any suggestions for what I could do with them. Many thanks.
I made plum jam last week, MIL was given loads so I used the bread maker she gave me (for Christmas last year) to make it into jam for her
Recipe was 4lb plums and preserving sugar to 1pt water, although I divided by 4 to get bread machine quantities. I also found that was too much water, and my "jam" is the consistency of sweet chilli sauce mmmmm crispy duck Tastes lovely, though, nice and sharp.
I'd think 1" ginger would be plenty, but it depends how gingery you like it...
Thank you LardyMa I'm looking at the Waitrose recipe now. I never knew jam sugar had the pectin and preserving sugar did not I'm going to have a go tonight. Could you let me have the recipe for the chutney please if you have it handy. purplepidjin Thanks for the lovely ideas. Do I keep the ginger whole (for just the flavour) or chop it up fine?
