It's plum season! It's plum season! It's a bumper crop, too! The tree branches are heavy with plums. So many plums that I finally have decided to start canning. On a visit north my grandma (Nona) so generously taught me how to make plum jam and I am forever grateful that she took the time to do that. Now every year that we get plums, we also will have jam the whole year through because she was such a great teacher of how to put up those plums. Wonders for winters to come.
|This is from one day of plum picking off our single tree. There were at least two weeks of two bowl yields a day in that beautiful tree this year. It more than made up for the paltry harvest last year.|
|These 12 jars are about half of the jam I made during those plum weeks this summer. Jam making is time consuming and a little stressful to a beginner but so totally worth it.|
|Plum jam gifts for our friends. Bring back the jars and you'll get more jam next year if our tree gives it!|
