Jam Season

Italian prunes (sometimes called Italian plums or Italian prune plums) always remind me of my grandparents and the many Sundays spent at the first house of theirs.  First, because my grandparents were Italian but also because of the two prolific prune trees that flanked the little gate from the backyard into the alley behind the house.  They bore more plums than the entire combined family of aunts, uncles and cousins could eat in a summer! 
Other than eating a few now and then, I hadn’t done much with Italian prunes for years.  But this year they called my name and I bought a few pounds of them.  My first project was a batch of jam.  I think next on the list will be a crostada – maybe combined with a few apricots – for a nice weekend treat.

    Hi Nadine!
    this was just a basic jam recipe that you can find anywhere.  If you use pectin you should follow the recipe you\’ll find in the box – that\’s the best way to make sure your jam comes out the way you\’d expect.
    Thanks for stopping by ~ B
