  3. Keep the pot with the fruits on the stove, cook on slow heat for about 45 mins, while stirring at times, until you can see a rolling boil (lots of foam too!). At that point, the jam should be ready and you can take it from the heat. Test if the jam is set by dropping some on a cold plate, the jam is ready if it doesn't run. If it runs, keep for some more time to cook on low heat and repeat the test until you have the correct consistency. cooking process of plum jam
  4. At this point you can either mash the cooked plums quickly or keep them in whole pieces.
  5. Before you fill the jars with the jam, drop little rum into the lid. That will help in keeping the jam germ and mold growth free. Blueberry Jam Organic {Recipe with 2 ingredients}
  6. Fill your clean jam jars with the plum jam, close well with the lid and turn the jar upside down. Keep them upside down for a few hours and then store them in a dry and cool place and keep away from direct sunlight.
