Plum Jam

I was lucky enough to score a bag of Damson plums recently, so today i have been making plum jam.  The recipe is as follows:

1.5 kg plums

juice of 1 lemon

1 cup of water

1.25 kg of sugar

Place whole plums, lemon juice and water in a large saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring occasionally. Continue to cook, stirring frequently to prevent mixture from catching on the bottom. Cook until the plums are well broken down. The pips should rise to the top and you can remove them with a slotted spoon. Add the sugar and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Bring mixture back to the boil, stirring regularly and cook until setting point is reached. Spoon jam into sterilised jars and seal.
