Vanilla Plum Jam


Making Jam || cityhippyfarmgirlOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Vanilla Plum Jam. It’s my all time favouritey-favourite kinda jam. It’s tarty, has vanilla tones and dollops particularly well onto, well anything that I match it with really.

Lucky for me I like it a lot as I’ve made batch after batch of these babies. It’s that time of year. Vanilla Plum Jam time.


Have a read here if you are new to jam making or are a bit hit and miss with your jam making methods. It really is a wonderful skill to be able to preserve the season and have even just a little of that knowledge under your belt.

Go on, give it a whirl. Try your hand at jam making.

  1. I loved it!! The jar your hubby brought over when he popped by in the xmas holidays was so good! Especially CΓ©line was charmed by it (and this girls is unusually critical πŸ˜‰ Yummy!!!


  2. sounds like beautiful jam’s taken me a long time to realise that i just don’t eat jam if it’s too sweet..for me it needs to be quite a sharp..but then i like to eat cumquats straight off the tree!


  3. Beautiful! That looks amazing and reminds me of when I was growing up and we had four plum trees in our backyard. Too many to eat so much would get out her enormous saucepan and make plum jam! xx


  4. Mum made some plum jam last autumn and it has been a real hit with me this winter. I currently have a jar open and might just go and get some now!


  5. Plums are such a lavish fruit aren’t they! Lucky there are so many fabulous ways to cook them as someone always has a tree groaning with excess πŸ™‚ I did plum and strawberry this year but plum and vanilla sounds like a lovely mellow combination – I assume you split the vanilla pods and chuck them in?
