I didn’t plan on sharing this one. Sorry about not taking any process photos. But the end result was tasty, so here it is.
Basically, if you know the ratios you like of fruit to sugar, you can substitute fruits and get creative. I had about 6 apples, a pear, 8 small plums and some thyme from the garden. I chopped up a lemon into half slices and added 4 cups of sugar.
I added some flower pepper(from trader joes) and a dash of sea salt at the end of the cooking process. Jam from whatever I had on hand. It tastes a little spicy, sweet and a little herbal. Yum.
3 pounds apples
1/2 pound plums
