Plum and Ginger Jam
- 900g plums
- 900g white sugar
- 2 tsp ground ginger
- 150ml water
Place the water and whole plums in a large pan, heat until the plums become mushy. If they begin to stick to the bottom of the pan before they are mushy, mash them with a potato masher or fork. Once they are mushy, add the ginger and sugar. Heat on a medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil and heat until the mixture passes the cold plate test. If you do not know what this is, you should google it as i’m not really sure of the best way to explain it so my attempt at an explanation would probably be utterly confusing!
Ps: sorry about the rubbish photo, I decided to make jam at some time, late in the evening and was far to sleepy to take a decent photograph.
