Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate
for several hours or up to two days. This is optional, but it
helps soften the plum skin for a smoother jam.
Transfer the mixture to the bread machine and choose the
Jam (#13) setting. When the cycle is complete transfer the
jam to a blender (make sure you don’t dump in the kneading
paddles) and pulse to blend the jam to the desired level of
Taste for seasoning, and add more sugar, if desired. To test
the thickness of the jam, place a small amount on a spoon and
refrigerate it until chilled.
Depending on the plums chosen, this might require additional
cooking to reach the desired thickness. You can cook it further
on the stovetop, or return it to the bread machine and use the
jam setting to cook and reduce it further.
