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

Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
6 cups crushed plums
(abt 3 1/2 lbs plums)
1 package powdered pectin
8 cups sugar

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 pectin and stir
well. Place on high heat and, stirring constantly, bring quickly to a
full boil with bubbles over the entire surface. Add sugar, continue
stirring, and heat again to a full bubbling boil. Boil hard for 1 minute.

Remove from heat; skim. 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 9 half-pint jars.
