Basically any kind of plum would work the same.


  • 3 Pounds Red Plums
  • 4 cups sugar


Wash and pit 3 pounds of red plums, place in bowl of food processor and chop coarsley. Measure 5 cups plums. Add the sugar and allow to stand for one hour. Boil hard, uncovered until syrup sheets off a metal spoon, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat; skim off foam. Pour at once into hot sterilzed jars; seal. Makes 5 half pints.
