Plum Amaretto Jam
4 cups chopped prune plums, about 1 /2 pounds 3 cups sugar 3 tablespoons lemon juice 2 tablespoons amaretto liqueur
Combine the plums, sugar and lemon juice in a large pan. Cook and stir over low heat until the sugar dissolves. Increase the heat to medium/high/ Bring the mixture to a full rolling boil, stirring frequently. Boil, uncovered, for 15 to 18 minutes or until a few drops of jam dropped on to a chilled plate thickens quickly. Remove from heat and skim off any foam. Stir in liqueur. Ladle into hot, sterilized jars leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Wipe the rims clean and seal immediately with the two-piece lids (top and screw-on ring). Process in a boiling water bath for 5 minutes. Cool, label and store. Makes three 1/2 pint jars.
