Yummy, with a Side of Hooray!

my mom's plum tree produced plentiful plums this year. she's been giving them away like crazy. i tried to find a recipe for plum pudding, but all i could find were recipes using raisins. um, hello! raisins aren't plums. anyway, i found a plum jam recipe. it seemed simple enough, four ingredients, so i printed it off. a couple days later i was at my mom's house. she was telling me to take some pectin home so that i could make the jam finally. we couldn't remember how much was needed so i asked my sister rachel to find the recipe online. she found a different one that was even simpler. plums, water, and sugar. no pectin needed. i was very excited. so i did that recipe instead. well, i just tasted the jam for the first time today. it was good! i think if i make it again i might add just a little more sugar. if you want the recipe go to cooks.com and look up plum jam. it's the one with only three ingredients.

um hello Ms. Martha Stewart. I'm very impressed. I've always been afraid to try and make stuff like jams and jellies.

Kyle likes the Smucker's Red Plum Jam, but now our Walmarts doesn't seem to carry it. My neighbor has a plum tree, maybe I'll make some.
