Easy Prune Plum Jam

3 cups

With a slight tang and less juice than other plums, they're great fresh or cooked down, the heat concentrating their flavor. Try these simple, fast recipes to give summer a sweet send-off.


  • 2 pounds halved, pitted prune plums

  • 2 cups sugar

  • 1 teaspoon grated lime zest

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

  • Salt


  1. Bring plums, sugar, lime zest, lime juice, and a pinch of salt to a boil in a pot, mashing plums with a potato masher. Cook, stirring often, until mixture has the consistency of thick honey. Remove skins using a fork. Let cool. Refrigerate until ready to use (up to 1 month).
