How do I make it ?
Chop (unpeeled) plums finely. Measure exactly 7-1/4 cups prepared plums into large saucepan. Combine 1/4 cup sugar and pectin crystals. Add to plums; mix well.
Bring to full rolling boil on high heat, stirring constantly. Add remaining sugar; stir. Return to full rolling boil; cook 1 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir and skim foam for 5 min. to prevent fruit from floating to surface.
Pour immediately into warm sterilized jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of rims. Cover with lids. Let stand at room temperature 24 hours or until set.
Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Measure ingredients accurately. Prepared fruit should be measured in a glass measuring cup after chopping. Sugar should be measured in a dry measuring cup that can be leveled off with a knife.
Sugar helps jams and jellies set properly, so don't reduce the amount of sugar used in jam or jelly recipes.
How to Accurately Measure the Sugar
To ensure accuracy of the sugar measure when preparing jams or jellies, use a dry measuring cup to measure the sugar, then place all the measured sugar in a separate bowl before adding it to the boiling fruit mixture in saucepan.
