Spiced Plum Jam

Spiced Plum Jam





Yield 6 1/2 pint jars

Spiced plum jam is a homemade stone fruit jam cooked with Christmas spices. Along with being a great recipe for canning or fruit preserves, a jar of spiced plum jam makes a beautiful holiday gift!



  1. Place chopped plums in a large pot with non stick coating or enamel-coated dutch oven. Add sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger and lemon juice.
  2. Place over medium-high heat and stir very often until the plums have released their juices and flesh has broken down, approx 15-20 mins. Test for desired consistency with a chilled spoon after 10-12 minutes of continuous boiling. 
  3. Remove from heat. Your jam is now ready for canning or freezing. (Or eating!)

    Canning: Fill hot sanitized jars, leaving 1/4 inch head space.
