Homemade Plum Jam

 There is nothing that I enjoy more than finding an amazing deal. I was at my favorite produce market called Randazzo and found a giant box of plums in the reduced section. It was about 15-20 pounds of plums and only cost $1.50!!! One of my favorite flavors is that of a cooked plum so the following morning, I started chopping all of my plums and put them into a pot. I ended up blending most of the sauce but kept some of it with chunks.

Homemade Plum Jam
15-20 lbs chopped plums (can easily reduce this by how much plums you have)
1/2 cup tapioca mix

1. Chop plums into large bite sized pieces. 
2. Throw into a large pot, add tapioca, add about a cup of water, and cook on high heat until it boils.
3. Once boiling, cover pot and reduce heat to low. Simmer plum mixture until it thickens and reduces.
4. Let sauce cool and then blend in a blender. If you like chunky sauce, it is excellent that way too.

**Please note that this sauce has no sugar or other sweeteners added. It was quite tart this way which I enjoyed but if you like it sweeter, add sugar or other sweetener.

This is awesome eaten plain, on a waffle, dipping pretzels in it, etc. It turned out excellent and I really enjoyed it!

  1. Everybody seems to be doing the jam and jelly thing lately and I must say this is the first time I've wanted to jump on the bandwagon and do what everyone else is doing! LOL
