How to Make a great Homemade Plum Jam

How to Make a great Homemade Plum Jam

  • Phenomenal plum jam as our grandmothers used to be prepared without preservatives and lemon, which is not needed. The jam is great, you will get a thick jam ideal for rolls, for strudels and pancakes, tart or as a spread over bread and toast, whatever. It only takes a little effort and patience and the product will be a great handiwork. See more about sterile jars here. Follow recipe.

Ingredients for 3-4 medium-sized jars:

  • 2 kg ripe plums

  • 400-500 g sugar (depends on how sour/sweet the plums are)

  • 1 dry vanilla pod and 1 cinnamon stick, optional

  • 1 big oval roasting tin with lid (if you don’t have a lid, use 2 sheets of aluminum foil)

How to make a great plum jam


  1. Clean the preserving jars (100 °C for about 10 min), and lids (cover them with boiling water).

  2. Let them dry.

  3. Cut the plums in half, pit them, cut in small pieces, place in a large tin/pan and mix with sugar.

  4. Add the vanilla pod and cinnamon stick.

  5. Cover with a lid and bake at 170 °C for about 30 min.

  6. Remove the lid, stir and continue baking for 2 hours at 160 °C.

  7. Put a wooden spoon between oven and door, so the steam can escape easily.

  8. After 2 hours, reduce the heat again, this time 150 °C, and bake for another 2 hours.

  9. Transfer your boiling hot jam to the jars using a funnel and screw the lids on.
