Cherry Plum Recipes: It's Cherry Plum Season, So It's Time to Make This Cherry Plum Jam Recipe

How have I never heard of cherry plums? On a trip to the grocery store, these tiny gems caught my eye. The fruit is more like a plum than a cherry, but the tartness makes a delicious jam that's perfect for biscuits, toast or even heated and spooned over ice cream. This recipe can be easy doubled.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 5 cups cherry plums, washed and pits removed
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/8 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Here’s how to make it:

  1. In a pot, combine the cherry plums, sugar and lemon juice. Bring to a boil. Cook, stirring often, about 20 minutes. Stir in vanilla.
  2. Pour into an airtight container or jar. Cool completely, then store in the refrigerator. For long-term storage, pour into sterilized jars and finish with a water bath. (Learn more about how to can summer fruit.)
