Nothing says Autumn more to me than the sight of plums all over the trees and of course in the shops. That Autumnal fruit that gives us the sweetness of summer for a little bit longer. This sugar free spiuced plum jam has that summer time flavour with the winter warmth of spices and no sugar either. A win, win situation!
I love plum jam and have made all sorts of it here on the blog;
This recipe for sugar free spiced plum jam is not one to have hanging about for a long time. Because it is sugar free it will only last about a week in the fridge, so enjoy it while you can. The recipe makes two small jars so I’m quite sure you will get through it pretty quickly anyway as it is rather moreish.
What’s In It?
There are very few ingredients, just plums, a cinnamon stick, star anise and vanilla extract. It is the latter that gives a sweetness that you would assume was sugar.
Stone the plums and whazz in a food processor till they form a paste. Ladle into a pan and add the spices and vanilla extract. Simmer for approximately 1 1/2 hours till thick and jammy consistancy. Spoon into 2 small sterilised jars.
