Sour plums make for sweet jam: tart and perfect for adding nontraditional spices. Think habaneros or cardamom and get the canning pot ready! These recipes are made with non-freestone plums, so the bulk of the work is in pitting. Happy canning!
I am an artist and aspiring farmer currently living in Philomath, OR (a tiny mill town in the Willamette Valley). I love cooking and never buy food out of boxes or bottles, unless a local farmer put it there. I'll be growing the majority of our veggies and meat/milk as soon as i get my hands on some property and in the meantime enjoy foraging, farmer's markets and bartering for my food. You can read more about me at PocketPause.com and see my art at MirandaRMueller.com and shop for my product at FiberFriends.Etsy.com or GoNudeSoap.com.
Yes, I am all over the place. Did i mention i enjoy multi-tasking?
