Plums make great jam when they are in season and very ripe. The delicious fruitiness of this jam is complemented by the cloves, cinnamon and gingerbread spice.

  • 3kg very ripe plums
  • 2 1/2 cups (500g) caster sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • gingerbread spice mix, to taste (start with about 1/2 teaspoon)
