Canning Week continues! This easy raspberry plum jam tastes like summer in a jar and can be enjoyed year-round.
The summer of 2013 will go down in history as That Time I Went Crazy with Jam. I’m finally getting comfortable with the process of canning in general and enjoying exploring new recipes, but jam will always have a special place in my heart. It’s easy, it’s fun, and there are so many fun combinations. This plum and raspberry jam is the latest in a long string of jams I’ve made this summer, and possibly my favorite.
Combining plums with raspberries is genius in several ways. First of all, it’s a great combination and one that you’re likely not going to find in the grocery store. It definitely screams homemade with love. Also, raspberries are expensive and adding plums is a great way to stretch the raspberry flavor while keeping your costs down.
One other thing I love about jam is that it makes great gifts. I’ve got a stockpile of jars in my basement just waiting for the holidays, and another stockpile reserved just for me. My friends and I will be enjoying the flavors of summer all winter long!
