Following on from yesterday’s post, mom cracked open a jar of the freshly made plum jam for breakfast today.  She spread a slice of organic white bread with some butter and topped it with a dollop of plum jam.

It was a gorgeous amber jelly, just holding together enough to be great for spreading.

We all had a nibble.  It was just sweet enough, with a soft and subtle plum taste.  Not too overpowering, with a lovely smooth, slippery texture.

My recommendation: find some local plums and get making your own homemade plum jam.  Perfect for Christmas presents, and in the depths of winter you’ll be pleased of a little slice of summer for breakfast.
