  • 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).
