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


  1. Wash the plums, remove the seeds and cut the plums in pieces.
  2. 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).
  3. Turn off the heat, remove the cinnamon stick and let cool to room temperature.
  4. Reserve the sweet in a glass jar tightly closed.
