Red Plum Fruit Spread

Have you noticed any plums on sale lately?  They are in season at the moment and very delicious.  I was fortunate enough to have been given at least 50 pounds of plums a few weekends back and I made enough bottled fruit spread to last my family the next three years.  Oh, it tastes so good!!  You’re going to love it too.

Red Plum Fruit Spread
8-10 pounds plums
2 lemons
3 cups sugar
Remove the pits from the plums and peel the lemon.  Puree together in a blender or food processor.  In a large pot stir all ingredients together.  Bring to a boil then simmer for 10-20 minutes (until it has reached your desired consistency).
Fill 8-10 sanitized 8 ounce jars with the liquid.  Screw on sanitized lids then process in a hot water bath for about 10 minutes. 
Wait at least 24 hours before testing the lids.
