Remember the plummy preview I treated you to? Well now that I have given away the gift that they became, I can share some lovely photos of the Black Doris Plum Jam that I made my friend Sarah for her wedding present. On her register at Briscoes (awesome), she asked for some preserving jars. I wanted to buy something from the register, but also be able to personalise it in some way, so these were perfect! I ended up with some wonderful plum jam that actually set, which I think is rather praiseworthy for a first effort of jam making! I had enough of the leftover product to have a bit of a taste test myself – luckily – and it passed quality control before becoming a lovely wedding gift. This is the finished product:
I found a perfect basket at the Papamoa market, which fit all four (large!) jars in it. Now for most people, I would be a bit worried about how they would manage to use a total of 2 litres of plum jam, but I’m sure Sarah will manage just fine! Visit her blog, and you’ll see why!
Anyway, Sarah (and of course, the lucky new husband), congratulations! And I hope you enjoy the jam!
Incidentally, the packaging of my plum jam worked very well with the gorgeous wedding decorations…
