  • 6 Cups Plums cut into halves or quarters. Pits removed.
  • 4 Cups Sugar
  1. Place plums and sugar in a large pot over medium heat.
  2. Bring to a boil stirring often so mixture won't scorch.
  3. Continue stirring while boiling until mixture begins to gel and thicken.
  4. Place in sterilized jars and process in a hot water bath.
  5. Half pints should be processed for 15 minutes. Adjust times according to your elevation. (See Notes in Post)
