|There weren't even any plums down this way!|
5 pounds ripe plums, halved and pitted
4 cups water
1 package (1 3/4 oz) fruit pectin
6 to 7 1/2 cups sugar (to taste--we like ours a little more tart than sweet)
Return liquid to the pan, add pectin and stir occasionally while bringing to a boil. Add sugar and return to a full rolling boil for one minute, stirring constantly.
