Plum Jam

As I told you earlier in my Peach Jam post, I like jams that are prepared at home without the added preservative. And when you see the stores stacking all the seasonal fruits, I tend to buy more than what I generally use and finally I make them into jams or preserves.
Ripe Plums(cubed)
2 cup
1 1/2 cup

Cut the plum into small pieces, remove the seed
In a 2 lt cooker, arrange these fruits cubes evenly
On top of this layer add the sugar uniformly
Now squeeze the lemon juice on it
Close the lid and cook it on high flame for 1 whistle.
Let the pressure release.
Now carefully open the cooker, mash the pulp very well
Cook it in low flame till the jam consistency is reached, that is when you drop it with a ladle, it should fall as a mass and not runny
Let it cool completely

Transfer it to sterilised bottles and refrigerate till use
