Hello friends, i am back and tasting sweet! Our website is running and its

 Using  Jams to fill your cakes or Jam and butter-cream in filling cakes. Will tell you a bit about Plum Jam and depending on the response i get. I will move on to Apple and Cinnamon jam. All my jams are home made!

Plum jam is a fruit preserve made with the whole fruits of the plum tree. Plum jam is typically very sweet, both because plums are sweet and because sugar is usually added to jam as a preservative. It can be used as a spread for breads, scones and other baked goods, and some people also like to use plum jam as a layer in cakes, or as a condiment to go with roasted meats, vegetables, and other foods.

Depending on the plums used, plum jam can be red, purple, yellow, or even green in colour. Some markets carry plum jam, especially if they carry in an assortment of fruit preserves. Plum jam is also available from companies and stores which specialize in the production of fruit preserves, in which case several different styles of plum jam may be available, along with other styles plum preserves. Cooks can also make plum jam at home, assuming that they are comfortable with the sterile canning process.
Like other jams, plum jam is made from whole crushed or cut fruit. The only part of a plum not used in jam is the pit, because the pit is not edible. Depending on the taste of the cook, the plums may be pitted and cooked whole, or they may be pitted and crushed or cut. The larger the pieces of fruit one begins with, the chunkier the end jam will be.
