Ingredients. Plums (1 kg), water (400 grams), sugar depending on the plum variety (1-1,4 kg).

If jam from whole plums, they must be pricked with a toothpick or several punctures with a fork (this will prevent the appearance of cracks when cooking fruits). For syrup we take sugar, depending on the sweetness of plum 1 kg or 1.4 kg and water (400 grams) and boil. True gourmets can add a few cloves of cloves or a stick of cinnamon to the syrup.
Half of the sink put in a large enamel pot with holes, where there were stones, to the top, and pour it with hot syrup, cover with gauze or a kitchen towel and leave for 7-9 hours.
Put the pan with the plums on the fire, afterhow jam will boil, boil for 10-15 minutes. Take away from the fire and leave for another 7-9 hours. Do this procedure 3 more times, and after each boiling leave the jam to infuse for 7-9 hours. As a result, we will get a plum jam, transparent with whole fruits, whose readiness is checked by a drop (it should not spread).
We sterilize the jars and put them in hot jam, roll them up and let them cool down (we do not need to wrap them).
