Plum Jam with Arshia Bread Maker

Plum Jam with Arshia Bread Maker

Plum Jam

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

chunkiness.

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.
