Plum Jam - Sweet, Sour & Spicy


Fresh Ripe Plums - 8
Sugar - 1 cup
Lemon Juice - 3 tablespoons
Orange Zest - 1 tablespoon (or use lemon zest)
Red Chili Powder - 3/4 teaspoon
Salt - 1/8 teaspoon


  1. Wash the plums and pat them dry.
  2. Pit the plums and chop them with their skin intact.
  3. In a thick bottomed pan, take chopped plum, sugar, salt and red chili powder. Cook until plum is soft and mushy.
  4. Add orange zest and lemon juice. Continue to cook until the mixture thickens and loses all the liquid content. The mixture will start coming together but before it forms a lump, turn off the heat as the sugar in the jam will solidify slightly on cooling.
  5. Serve as required or store in air tight container to serve when needed.
