Italian plums are delicious, but they are only in season for a short period of time.
So go buy some right now!
Or use your own plums.
My 2 (yes, 2 - lazy trees!) plum trees produced a total of 4 ripe plums.
So........I had to buy a few plums.
Chop them if you want to, but I left mine in halves.
They looked too beautiful to chop up.
Add 1 whole orange and 1 whole lemon, ground up finely in a food processor.
3 cups sugar.
1 cup raisins or dried currants.
Combine all ingredients in a large saucepot.
Bring slowly to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves.
Optional: Soak your raisins/currants in 1/2 cup rum or juice.
I used a combination of rum and raspberry/guava juice (one of my mistake jellies)
As mixture thickens, stir frequently to prevent sticking.
Remove air bubbles.
Adjust two-piece caps.
Process 15 minutes in a boiling-water canner.
