41/2 cup water

51x 50g pack Jamsetta.


7Cut plums into quarters and remove stones.

8Add plums, sugar, lemon & zest and water to the slow cooker.

93hrs on high with the lid on, stirring occasionally; 1hr on low, lid off stirring occasionally.

10Blend (I like it smooth and thick v's chunky).

11Jamsetta is optional, makes it set thicker. I got a cup, used half of the jamsetta pack & some of the pured fruit to mix and added it in. Bottled it up and done!

Sounds good. I must try this using the slow cooker.

We followed this recipe and cooked the plums on LOW for 7.5 hours. They made a good jam, although I did puree most of the plum mixture after 3 hours as I was concerned they weren’t pulping up fast enough. The lemon juice makes the jam tart – some of us like that flavour; others want to try it without the lemon juice. It was relaxing using a slow cooker – one didn’t have to worry about burning the jam.

Is making plum jam in a slow cooker successful.
Does it set ok or is the liquid the slow cooker creates too much.
By not adding any liquid would this be better.
