  • 500 gms plums
  • 2 cups sugar


  • Cut the plums and discard the seeds
  • Chop them into halves or smaller pieces if you like
  • Take a heavy-bottomed saucepan and add the plums to it
  • Add sugar and turn on the heat.
  • Give it a stir and let the sugar melt. Keep it covered while the sugar is melting.
  • Once the sugar melts, uncover and give it a stir.
  • The plums will release a lot of water/ juice and it will cook in its own juice.
  • You can now keep the temperature high and let it boil. Every now and then, give it a stir.
  • Once the plums have softened, they will dissolve and thicken. The skin remains, which is fine and it helps in spreading the jam well. Gives it a nice texture.
  • When it has become syrupy, take a spoon and pick some jam and pour on a cold plate.
  • Pop the plate in the refrigerator for 2 minutes. Take it out and run your finger in the center to see if there is a clear line and it feels like jelly. That is your indication that the jam is ready.
  • Take it off the heat and let it cool down. As it cools down, it thickens further. Once cooled, store in glass containers.
