Rosemary Plum Jam
Rosemary Plum Jam
4 lbs. plums, pitted and diced
1 cups sugar
1/2 cup marsala
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. Nob Hill Trading Co. Aged Balsamic Vinegar
Leaves from 3 large stems of fresh rosemary, wrapped in cheesecloth

It's important to use the aged balsamic vinegar because it is sweeter and thicker.

Prep: 30 minutes, Cook: about 2 hours total, Makes: 1 quart

1. Place all ingredients in a large heavy pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, for 1 hour or until mixture is very thick and coats the back of a spoon. When mixture begins to thicken, reduce heat to low and stir often to avoid scorching. Remove rosemary stems.

2. Remove from heat and pour into sterilized jars, leaving 1/2 inch empty at the top and follow basic canning instructions below, boiling for 15 minutes.  

Basic Canning Instructions:

1. FiIl a large stockpot half full with water and bring to a boil (allow 1/2 to 1 hour, depending on size of pot). Submerge empty canning jars, lids and rings in water; remove to a clean cloth.

2. Fill jars, leaving 1/2 inch open at the top of each, making sure to keep rims clean (a wide mouth funnel works well for this). Eliminate any bubbles by stirring with a non-metallic kitchen utensil such as a wooden skewer or chopstick. Wipe away any food from the rims with a clean damp cloth.Top with sterilized lids, screwing rings on tightly, then loosening about 1/4 inch. Lower into boiling water, making sure water reaches 1 to 2 inches above lids and return to a boil. Cook according to recipe instructions.

3. After processing, remove jars carefully from pot and set on a cloth.

4. When jars have cooled, check to make sure all are sealed by pushing down in the center. If the lids give and make any noise, jars have not sealed properly and should be refrigerated. Store sealed jars in a cool, dark place.
