A simple recipe for making plum jam with spices for the winter

Pitted plums in a saucepan

We prepare the plums for processing: wash them, remove the tails and bones. We put them in a saucepan with a thick bottom.

Plums after heat treatment

Simmer the fruit over low heat, covered with a lid, for about 15–20 minutes, so that they are thoroughly softened.

The plum mass is mashed

When the halves of the plums have turned into gruel, remove the pan from the heat, let them cool slightly (to about 70-80 degrees) and puree with a submersible blender. You can make the jam completely homogeneous by carefully breaking the pulp and skin, or you can, if you like, leave small uncrushed fragments.

Spices added to plum puree

Add sugar and spices to the plum puree. Cook jam with spices, stirring constantly and not letting the sugar stick to the bottom, for about 20 minutes, and then we take out a cinnamon stick and an star anise star so that the aroma is not too intrusive.

Plum mass brought to thickening

If you want the plum jam to be thicker, continue to cook it over low heat for another 15 minutes.

Plum jam poured into a jar

Pour jam into sterile, well-heated jars and close them with lids. We wrap the jars and leave to cool completely.

What does a ready-made plum jam with spices look like?

Fragrant plum jam with a delicate pleasant aftertaste is ready. Now you can happily while away winter evenings with a cup of strong tea and spicy jam.
