Yesterday I grabbed the bottle and decided to make some Plum Syrup and Plum Jelly. You know those expensive little bottles of fruit syrup you buy at the grocery store? Well no more! This stuff is so good! It's thick, has a beautiful colour, and tastes great. The kids and I ate it with waffles this morning and we polished off half a jar :)
Plum (or any fruit) Syrup
2 cups juice
1/2 cup white corn syrup
3 cups sugar
Combine all three ingredients into a large pot. Bring to a boil. Boil for 15 minutes. Turn off heat, skim foam, and pour into sterilized jars. Process for 15 minutes in a hot water bath.
I still had 4 cups of plum juice left so I decided to make jelly. I needed 5 1/2 cups of juice and I added some of the pear/apple juice I had to make the full amount. The jelly is very similar to the grape jelly I made.
