Spiked Plum Jam

    2 hours 20 minutes

    This plum jam is tart yet sweet at the same time. It's spiked with spiced rum and fresh ginger, but don't worry, all the alcohol cooks out and its good for all ages.

    1. Put the plums, 2 cups of sugar, lemon juice and rum into a large saucepan then bring to a boil while mashing with a potato masher. Reduce heat and allow to simmer, stirring often, about 30 minutes. With a stick blender, carefully blend in the saucepan until all skins are smooth.
    2. Stir in the ginger, taste test then add additional sugar, if needed. Sprinkle in the a small amount of cinnamon. Continue to simmer until reduced and thick, about 45 minutes to an hour. Allow to cool, then bottle or freeze.

    Cook's Note

    I used some yellow plums that a friend gave me (that I have never seen before, but tasted the same as the purple ones), so your jam may be darker than mine, but will taste just as good.
