    1kg fresh plums (about 10)
    1kg Chelsea Jam Setting Sugar
    2 Tbsp orange zest


    Remove stones from plums and cut into small pieces or pulse in the food processor until finely chopped. In a large saucepan combine chopped plums, sugar and orange zest cook over a low heat stirring until sugar has dissolved. Increase heat and boil rapidly for 4 minutes. Remove from heat, test a small amount on a cold plate for set (the surface of the jam should wrinkle when a spoon is pushed through it). Spoon into hot, sterilised glass jars and seal.

    Makes about 1.3 kg or 4-5 medium jars.

This is my go-to recipe for jam - love the flavour that the orange zest gives it. My kids love it, too - we run out very quickly!

Made this tonight with cherry plums, very happy with the result. Great taste, very easy and will make lovely gifts.

The flavour was great butI hadn't made jam with butter in it before and didn't like the look of how it set cold
