Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

  • Bloominanglophile on September 15, 2013

    When I lived in England, I was lucky enough to have a Damson plum tree in our yard. The year it gave us a good-sized crop, I made jam using this recipe. Be careful not to overcook the jam--all the pectin in the plums results in a quickly setting jam. I also left the pits in, just as Edna Lewis recommends, even though they could be slightly annoying to pick out of the jars. I wonder if anyone who makes jam can conform the pits add noticeable flavor if left in the jar. Anyone?!?
