Introduction

This is a quick, easy, and delicious recipe, a wonderful combination of sweet and tart. I make it with prune plums, which grow well in our area. The color is amazing and the completed result makes a nice gift. This is a quick, easy, and delicious recipe, a wonderful combination of sweet and tart.

Ingredients

    4-6 cups Prune Plums, Pitted
    1 orange
    1 lemon
    1.5 cups white sugar

Directions

Prepare your plums - remove the pits and remove any major blemishes from the skins. There is no need to chop them, nor do you need to peel them.

Cut the orange into 1/8 wedges (peel and all) and remove any seeds. Cut the lemon into 1/4 wedges (peel and all) and remove any seeds. Slice the orange and lemon into thin slices, 1/8" or thinner.

Combine plums, orange, and lemon into a large saucepan and slowly bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat, add the sugar, and continue to boil, for between 20 and 60 minutes until the mixture gels when placed on a cold spoon. Remove from heat.

Sterilize 7 1-cup canning jars in boiling water for 10 minutes. Pour the marmalade into the jars, keeping approximately 1/4" head-space. Any extra can be placed in the fridge immediately and used as-is. Place warm canning lids on the jars and secure with rings, hand-tightening only. Process the filled jars in boiling water for 10 minutes, and let sit to cool at least 24 hours.

Yield: 6-7 1-cup jars.
