Nonstick cooking spray
10 c Italian plums (or similar
-freestone plums); chopped
-and quarter
7 c Sugar
Juice of 2 lemons

Spray the insides of the pot with nonstick cooking spray. Combine plums,
sugar, and lemon juice in pot. Over medium-low heat, mix well to combine.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, removing foam as it forms. Simmer
until thick, about 25-35 minutes ( until 220 degrees) , stirring
occaisionally. Ladle into hot sterilized jars to within 1/8-inch of jar
top. Place lids on and process in boiling water bath 15 minutes.

NOTES : A very luscious jam. It puts commercial plum jam to shame. Try
other plums such as Damson, or a combination of plums, for perfect English
muffin spread.
