  • Pot
  • Jam Jars


  • 1 kg plums
  • 500 g gelling sugar see notes to make it yourself
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • ½ lemon juice


Prepare the plums

  • Wash your plums.
  • Remove the stone and cut the plums small. I usually cut them in half and then cut each half into quarters.

Make the jam

  • Sterilize the jars. Check out this post for instructions How to sterilize your jars - Oh Sweet Cultureshock
  • Then add all ingredients to a big pot and bring it to a boil.
  • Let the mixture cook for 5 minutes and keep on stirring so it won't burn.
  • Turn off the heat and remove the pot from the stove.

Do the gelling test

  • With a spoon take some of the jam out, put it on a cold small plate and let it set in the fridge. That way you can test if the jam cooked long enough to actually set.

Fill the jam into the jars

  • Finally you put a spoon into the hot jars and fill the jam into them.
  • Lid on and let it cool completely.


  • Homemade gelling sugar:
    • 1kg sugar
    • 20g pectin
    • 10g citric acid  
  • Shelf Life: Your jam will be good for up to 1 year when stored in a cool, dark place. Chill your jam in the refrigerator once opened. If you keep the jam in the freezer your jam can last up to 2 years.
  • Extra sealing: You can extra seal your jars after filling them with the jam to make sure they stay good extra long. You can do it in your steamer if you have one (each steamer is a bit different so read the manual it is explained in there) or you put the tightly closed, filled jars into a 10 minute water bath in boiling water.
  • Bigger batches: You can absolutely do bigger batches. However, I would do it in 2 different pots. The more fruits and sugar you add the longer it needs to bring the whole mass to a boil and the jam will not turn out the same way.
