I just came back yesterday. I was spending a very, very long week-end in Montpellier. So lucky ! However summer and holidays are … definitely over … Once again, it was too quick … I hope that we will still have few more nice days before fall comes.
For my own comfort, I am most of the time laying on my couch in front of the TV under a large blanket or in a warm bath reading. Anyway this is always something related to “warm” or “sugar” 🙂 !
Speaking of which … Jam is one of my favourite sugar. That’s the best. On top of some bread, croissant, in a yoghurt or a tart … It goes with everything ! Almost …
I hope that you will like this jam as much as the mother of my best friend loved it 🙂 ! I made it for the Bataille Food #26 organised by Florence du blog Un “Flo” de bonnes choses. If you want to know more about this food contest, read the French version of this post :).
And you will find below the recipe.
Plum jam with spices
- 2 kg. of plums
- 1.2 kg. of sugar
- the juice of 1 lemon
- 1 level teaspoon of gingerbread spices coriander, star anise, cinnamon, clove
- Wash, seed and dice plums.
- Mix fruits with sugar, lemon juice and spices.
- Leave to rest one night in your fridge.
- The next day, cook the mixture in a large pot on medium/low heat for around 60 minutes.
- Remove foam regularly monitoring the cooking process.
- To check if the jam is ready, drop a bit of jam on top of a clean plate and if it sticks fill in your sterilised jars. Do not hesitate to place your plate in your fridge, so the jam will cool down more quickly.
