Jam! and sprouting seeds.
750 g Apples peeled and cored
750 g Plums
450 ml Water
1.5 kg Sugar
1 tsp Salt
Wash plums and place in the Maslin pan with the apples and water.
Cook the fruit slowly until the skins of the plums are softened.
Add the sugar, stir over low heat until dissolved, bring to the boil and boil rapidly until setting point is reached.
Remove the stones as they rise to the surface, ( I think it's best to do this before cooking myself).
Remove from the heat, skim (I didn't), pot, cover and label.
Upon typing this I realise I didn't use the salt as it doesn't mention when to add this so I forgot.
I got 6 and a half varying sized jars out of it.
My youngest was chomping at the bit to taste this on some crusty bread she had ready but I did manage to make her wait until it was cooled down a bit :)
Her verdict: tasty.
