Ingredients and Method


  • 1 kg Plums
  • 1 kg Tate & Lyle® Jam Sugar


  1. Rinse the plums in cold water. Quarter the plums to remove the stone and place into your Kilner® Preserving Pan.
  2. Fill the pan with water so it covers the fruit and gently simmer on a low heat until the fruit has softened then crush with a potato masher.
  3. Add the Tate & Lyle® Jam Sugar to the fruit and stir until dissolved.
  4. Turn up the heat and bring to a rapid boil for 10 minutes or until the mixture reaches its setting point.
  5. Cool slightly and transfer to warm sterile Kilner® Jars, leaving about 1cm space between the lid and seal.
  6. Finally, process your jars.
  7. Keeps for 12 months in a cool, dry cupboard. Once opened, refrigerate and consume within one month.
