No-Sugar Plum Jam

Yield: Makes about 4 cups


  • 24 pitted, chopped plums (to equal 9 cups)
  • 1 packets (1 3/4 ounces each) powdered pectin
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar substitute


Place the chopped plums in a heavy 3-quart saucepan. Stir in the pectin. Cook 15 minutes, stirring constantly until the jam reaches the desired thickness. Remove from the heat and stir in the sweetener.

Ladle into clean, hot jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Seal and allow the jam to cool to room temperature, then store for up to 3 weeks in the refrigerator or freeze for as long as a year. If you're using a sugar substitute that doesn't break down in cooking, you may process the jars for 15 minutes in a boiling water bath, then cool and store at room temperature. Refrigerate after opening.
