Shake the pan and continue to cook the jam on a slow boil until plums start to break down and jam thickens, it takes approximately 15-18 minutes.3. To check the setting point of the jam place a sugar thermometer in the jam and move it around so that you get an even heat distribution, than take pan off the heat and take reading.

  29. I like fruit jams, but all jams from market added acid and have a strong sour taste. I can't taste any fruit, but always acid and sour. I like this very much, easy to make and I think I will omit the lemon juice, although only 1 tablespoon. Homemade jam always the best. I can adjust to my own taste. :)
