Til a week ago I had never even
heard of them .
I was lucky enough to be given
two heaping bowls full
of fresh picked plums &
right away I knew I was going
to make some jam !
I quickly started looking up recipes
for yellow plum jam and finally
decided to use the one that sounded
best to me and also was flavored
with vanilla and cinnamon .
My Jam came out perfect &
With all of the plums I was given
I was able to make quite a few
pint size jars that I will now
store away for future gift giving
and keep a couple for myself
of course .
Have you been admiring my plants in the background ?
These clover plants are one of my new loves .
I bought a couple of these plants for a dollar
a piece at a thrift store and I love them .
I especially love the deep dark reddish purple
ones with delicate white flowers ,
they seem like they are constantly
in bloom .
