Nothing better than prepare a delicious homemade plum jam made the old fashioned way. Excellent to serve with toasts and tea.

Units: Metric (Units: US)


  • 1 kg (2 1/4 pounds) plums
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 3 tablespoons liqueur
  • 350 grams (1 1/2 cups) granulated sugar


    Step 1

    1. Wash the plums, remove the seeds and cut the plums in pieces.

    Step 2

    1. Place the plums cut in pieces, the sugar, honey, liqueur and the cinnamon stick in a non-stick saucepan. Stir with the help of a spoon and cook over low heat about 40 minutes until thickens (pass a wooden spoon in the bottom of the saucepan and if it leaves a trail like a road, the sweet is ready), stirring occasionally (we like to leave the jam with small plum chunks).

    Step 3

    1. Turn off the heat, remove the cinnamon stick and let cool to room temperature.

    Step 4

    1. Reserve the sweet in a glass jar tightly closed.
