Canning Prune Plum Jam

This is another canning initiated by an attendee. This time its canning Prune Plum Jam. The attendee tried some of this jam from her friend and she liked it and decided to try to make some herself. She bought the prune plums for about 99 cents a pound.


This Prune Plum Jam does not require any pectin at all. Plum is rich in pectin itself.

Prune Plum Clafouti

I found a very good deal on prune plum last week. It only cost 49cents per pound. I bought more than 7 pounds with the help of Polly. I like prune plum because it is very convenient to munch on due to its small size. I presume it also has the laxative quality like prune and plum.

Since I bought so much prune plum, I have to use some of them in baking. I found this Prune Plum Clafouti which is very simple to make and sounds fancy.


The Prune Plum Clafouti turns out pretty nice with the mild eggy and lightly sweet topping and a hint of tartness from the fruit at the bottom.

This is another great summer recipe which works just as well with many other summer fruits.


  • 12 fresh prune plums or one 3/4lb canned plums, drained, pitted
  • 1/3 cup plus 3 tablespoons self-raising flour
  • 1/4 cup castor sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup plus 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 oz (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted
