Plum Jam With Liquid Pectin
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
4 1/2 cups crushed plums - (abt 2 1/2 lbs plums)
7 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 bottle liquid pectin

To prepare fruit. Sort fully ripe plums, wash, cut into pieces, and
remove pits. If flesh clings tightly to pits, cook plums slowly in a
small amount of water for a few minutes until they are softened, then
remove pits. Crush fruit.

To make jam. Measure crushed plums into a kettle. Add sugar and stir
well. Place on high heat and, stirring constantly, bring quickly to a
full boil with bubbles over the entire surface. Add pectin; bring again
to full boil. Boil hard 1 minute.

Pour immediately into hot, sterile canning jars to 1/4-inch from top.
Seal, and process 5 minutes in boiling water bath.

This recipe yields about 8 half-pint jars.
