How to make the best homemade jams

Do you want to have jelly like grandma’s? Cook them according to our procedure and tips. All you need is enthusiasm, plums, sugar and a few hours at the stove. And in the evening you will have jams at home, in which there will be a spoon, and like your grandmother, you will cut them nicely with a knife.

Ingredients for 2-3 kilos of jam

  • 10 kg of plums
  • 400 g of granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon


  1. Ripe plums are collected directly from the tree, overripe fallen fruits can also be used to make excellent jams.
  2. Let’s remember that the riper the plums, the sweeter the jam.
  3. Stem the plums, wash them thoroughly, cut them in half and pit them.
  4. Grind halved plums in a meat grinder, as our grandmothers used to do.
  5. If we want to speed up our work, a vegetable chopper, in which the plums are once or twice processed into a mash, will also work well.
  6. We put the ground plums in a large pot with the largest possible circumference so that the liquid can evaporate well.
  7. We thicken the jam over low heat, during a gentle boil and with constant stirring for 4 to 5 hours.
  8. Mixing is very important, jam can quickly burn not only on the bottom, but also on the walls of the container.
  9. And burnt jams are unpleasantly bitter.
  10. By thickening the jam from 10 kilograms of plums, which takes about 5 hours, we produce about two to three kilograms of honest jam.
  11. After about two to three hours, about five centimeters of liquid will have evaporated from the pot, the pot will smell nice, the marmalade will bubble and thicken.
  12. The jam is thickened enough when a third to a quarter of the weight of the plums remains.
  13. If we make jam from overripe sweet plums, we check how they taste.
  14. Add about 400 g of granulated sugar to taste and cook for another 30 minutes.
  15. We check the density of the jam by running a spoon over the cooled sample on the plate.
  16. A few minutes before cooking, our grandmothers used to add a little ground cinnamon to the jam to make it more fragrant.
  17. If the jam has a good consistency, then pour it boiling into sterilized glasses up to the brim.
  18. Clean the top edge and the thread of the cup with a kitchen towel, if by chance the liquid drips on it while scooping, so that the lid holds well.
  19. Close the lid tightly, turn it upside down and let it cool for about 10 minutes.
  20. Then we turn the jam jars over, check that the lids are tight, and let them cool.
  21. Cooled jams are hard, shiny, almost black, not bitter, so we managed not to burn them and have a typical delicious taste.

And how did they turn out for you and the buns? Brag to us in the comments!
