Oven-Baked Plum Jam

It's best to use the ripest plums you can for this delicious jam which is baked instead of simmered. A little Amaretto added at the end makes it super special.


Serves: 20 

  • 2kg ripe plums, washed and stones removed
  • 2 cups (400g) caster sugar
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) Amaretto liqueur (optional)

  1. Preheat oven to 150 C.
  2. Place plums in a large saucepan, cover and heat slowly. Gently cook plums until soft. Stir in 1/4 of the sugar and transfer everything to a large ovenproof dish.
  3. Place in oven on the second shelf from the bottom. Allow plum jam to slowly thicken in the preheated oven with the oven door slightly ajar (stick a wooden spoon in the door). After half an hour, stir in another 1/4 of the sugar and keep baking. Repeat twice with remaining sugar.
  4. The jam must be thick enough that if you draw a line into it with a wooden spoon, the line stays visible. Keep in oven longer if necessary.
  5. When finished stir in Amaretto. Fill hot sterilized jars with jam and seal.
