Ingredients for The jam "Christmas plum"

Step by step instruction of cooking The jam "Christmas plum"

Шаг 1

Plum-Hungarian cut into halves, remove the bones. Pour 70 ml of water and put on fire. Allow to boil diminish the fire to a minimum. Stirring from time to time, give the sink "to go". Depending on the ripeness of the prune it will take 20-40 minutes. I this time took half an hour.

Шаг 2

In hot plum puree add spices: 1/3 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp cloves and coriander and a pinch of nutmeg. I spend them on a grater literally 3-4 times.
If you "no friends" with any spice - do not place, replace another, you will get a new bouquet of taste.

Шаг 3

At this stage you can pause and leave the sauce to infuse, say, overnight. But you can continue immediately. I personally think that jam left in the night, less foam then.

Шаг 4

Pour the boiling jam in the boiled or calcined jars, close boiled lids and put upside down for five minutes, turn over and forget about them for about two months.
In winter, open and enjoy.
Of this amount, the products I got this year was about 1200 ml of jam.
