Plum jam – from tree to jar

Picking the plums.

This was Abundance Edinburgh’s second plum picking, in Sciennes on the 9th of September.

I also had some plums from the first one two days earlier at Damhead (as featured on Radio Scotland).

Washing, halving and stoning...

Raw ingredients assembled.

Simmering the fruit with a little water...

Adding sugar.

This is what happens if you overfill the pan! (I decanted some of the jam into the small pan so as not to lose too much.)

Boil and bubble...

Jars warmed and sterilised with hot water.

The first jar filled.

The finished product.

Jam labelled and ready to go.
