Plum Jam for Sweet-Milk Biscuits

Makes about 2 1/2 cups

This sweet-and-tart jam is easy to make and a perfect complement to our Sweet-Milk Biscuits.


  • 2 pounds plums (both red and black), pitted and cut into 2-inch chunks

  • 2 cups sugar

  • Pinch of coarse salt

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


  1. Stir together plums, sugar, and salt in a large pot. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring frequently.
