Plum Blueberry Jam

Plums and Blueberries, who can resist?

Plum Blueberry Jam

6 cups fresh Italian plums, washed, pitted, and chopped
4 cups fresh blueberries, washed and checked for stems
4 cups of sugar
Juice of 2 limes
1 Tablespoon of butter if desired (to lessen foam)

Add plums, blueberries, sugar, and lime juice to stock pot.  On low heat, bring to a simmer. Add in butter if using. Simmer for 15 minutes, skimming off any foam, remove from heat and allow to cool.

Reheat and simmer 15 minutes. Repeat this step until jam thickens. You will get a good feel for its set when it cools. Pack hot jam in clean hot jars, with 1/2 in. headspace, and process for 10 minutes. Makes ~5 pints.
