Plum Preserves



Plum (with a little peachiness) Preserves

This is easy as can be- fresh, light and summery. I can't wait until stone fruits are at their best because it really makes me feel like summer is here. We had some plums that were getting past their prime as well as 4 small white peaches. All you need is a good heavy bottom pot, fruit, water and sugar. It was just enough to fill a mason jar. I made some fabulous French sandwich bread to slather the preserves on and I had the happiest kid in town.

Enjoy!

2 lbs plums, (I had roughly 1 1/2 lbs of plums and 1/2 lb of white peaches)
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup pure cane organic sugar
1 cinnamon stick or a generous pinch of cinnamon (I used the ground cinnamon)

Chop the fruit and dump everything into the pot. Simmer, uncovered while giving it a good stir every once in awhile. When it appears thick enough- you'll know, about 45 min an hour.
Remove from heat and cool. Transfer to jar and cool.

Hi foodiemama,

I just wanted to let you know I answered your question regarding the Red Velvet Brownies over in the comment section on my blog. Sorry to post here, I couldn't find an email for you. Anyhoo, if you don't want to head back over there, this is probably what I would do:

"@foodiemama How fun for a birthday "cake"! The original dish I used was an 8x8 glass pan. I'm not sure what size exactly a 1/2 sheet cake pan is? I would think if it was considerably larger, you might want to 1 1/2 or double the recipe. If the batter height is about the same (about 1 1/2 inches) I would keep the bake time about the same, maybe start checking it a little early (thinner cut the cooking time, thicker cook for longer). If the pan size isn't that far off, maybe keep the amount the same and start checking the doneness around 20-25 min instead. Hope that helps! -- Oh, and double the buttercream!"

Love your site!
