We moved to a new house and lo and behold there are three plum trees and an apple tree on the property! Since the plums are ripening, I was able to pick enough for a batch of jam. I found a recipe for a chipolte pepper and plum jam but the commissary doesn't carry the canned chipotles any more so I modified it with four jalapenos. The recipe is 8 cups of pitted plums 6 cups sugar 4 minced jalapenos seeds removed 1 orange zested and chopped minus the pith and rind. (Original recipe was 4 chipotles in adobo, no seeds, and 1Tbsp adobo) I boiled the mix until it hit 218F and started to gel and then transferred the jam into sterilized pint jars. My three year old likes it so I guess its good I think it will go well with this cheese I smoked also. Lessons learned: Don't make jam in flip flops Use a long handled wooden spoon 218F jam is really HOT and burns on exposed skin Wear an oven mitt when stirring Thanks for looking!
