1 Fruity plum jam

Home (South Africa) - - HULETTS PROMOTION -

• 700g plums, stoned and chopped (or other stone fruit such as apri­cots or peaches) • 500g Huletts White Sugar • juice of 2 large lemons • 2cm fresh gin­ger, chopped

1 Start the evening be­fore: mix all the in­gre­di­ents to­gether in a plas­tic con­tainer (or an­other non-re­ac­tive ves­sel such as a ce­ramic bowl) and allow it to stand; this en­sures that the sugar melts slowly.

2 The fol­low­ing day, place the mix­ture in a saucepan and stir over medium heat un­til all the sugar has dis­solved. Now cook the jam over medium heat for about 25–30 min­utes, stir­ring oc­ca­sion­ally to pre­vent burn­ing.

3 To test if the jam is ready, spoon a lit­tle onto an ice-cold saucer and press it lightly with your fin­ger. If the sur­face crin­kles, it’s ready. Spoon into ster­ilised jars and seal.
