Still Canning Prune Plums

by Josée

For some reason I keep bringing home prune plums. Yesterday I bought another 8lb case. I’ve put up prune plums as plums in honey, plums in port, plum jam and savory plum sauce. I needed new inspiration and luckily the book that I suggested to the library came in: Canning for a New Generation: Bold, Fresh Flavors for the Modern Pantry.

There are a few interesting plum recipes in this book:

Cardamom plum jam p. 116
Blood plum and apple jam in rosewater p. 117
Plums for pies and cobblers p. 119
Chinese plum sauce p. 120

They all looked really tasty, but I decided to try the plums for pies and cobblers. I’ve never eaten a plum pie before but it reminds me of this nursery rhyme:

Little Jack Horner
Sat in a corner
Eating a Christmas Pie
He put in his thumb
And pulled out a plum
And said
“Oh, what a good boy am I!”

Fresh out of the canner, plums for pies and cobblers.

I must say that you either love canning a lot or are a sucker for punishment 😀

I forgot to ask you how your cider and wine is turning out? The peach one interests me in particular. The canned plums sure look pretty!
