Plum Ginger Vanilla Jam

Tarty goodness!

Plum Ginger Vanilla Jam

This is a tart jam, please ignore if the tang is not your friend.

10 cups of plums, washed, pitted, and chopped
1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and diced
2 cups of vanilla sugar
1 cup of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 lemon, juiced
2 teaspoons lemon zest
1 Tablespoon of butter (if desired)

Add all ingredients to heavy bottomed pot and stir to combine. Bring to a boil over medium heat, removing any foam. Cook 15 minutes, remove from heat, allow to cool. Reheat and cook another 15 minutes. Repeat until you reach desired thickness. If you want it smoother, hit it with a stick blender. Ladle into hot jars with 1/2 headspace, and process 10 minutes. Makes 5 pints
