A friend of mine was kind enough to share fresh prune plums, right form the tree. Prune plums are especially amazing in Plum Pie, but in my case, I got more than I could handle, so I decided to make jam.

With just two ingredients, this small batch prune jam is rich, sweet, and just right. Use it for everything from toast to baking or can it for up to a year!
- 4 qts Plums
- 1 qt Sugar
- Rinse the plums, remove the seeds, and slice them into quarters.
- Place the plums into a pot and cover them with sugar. Allow them to sit in the refrigerator overnight to develop a nice juice.
- The next day heat the plum mixture over low heat on the stovetop, stirring it constantly to prevent the fruit from burning. Once it begins to boil, immediately remove it from heat. Repeat this process 5-7 more times, letting the plums completely cool between each round (this process will help to thicken the jam).
- Once you bring the plums to their last boil, transfer the jam into jars or can them for longer use.
