Total time required : 60 minutes

No. Of serving : 1 medium jar of jam


  • Fresh chopped plums – 2 and 1/2 cups
  • Sugar – 1 cup
  • Lemon – 1


1. Wash the plums, cut into two halves. Remove the pits and chop into pieces. Keep aside.

2. Place a wide heavy bottomed pan in flame. Add the chopped plums into the pan along with sugar.

3. Squeeze the lemon juice and stir until sugar dissolves. Cook in medium flame stirring continuously to prevent sticking.

4. Once it starts boiling, simmer the flame and continues cooking stirring occasionally. Gently mash the plum pieces with wooden ladle.

5. The bubbles will rise to the top and the color will darken as it cooks. Cook until it turns thick.

6. To check the consistency of jam, put a spoon of cooked mixture into ceramic plate. Once it is hot enough to touch, run your finger through the jam and it has to leave the track clear without combining together.

7. Once done, remove from flame. Allow to cool a bit, transfer into sterilized glass jar. Keep refrigerated and it remains good for 3 months time.

8. Spread it on bread, sandwiches and enjoy this homemade plum jam.
