"I used Italian prune plums, which are sweeter than Damsons, but I used the same proportions of ingredients. Very good, especially with the cardamom!" – nichola35

Recipe of the Day
Damson Plum Cardamom Jam
The Damson plum makes a tart, flavorful, soft-setting jam that is a rich, deep wine-colored spread for cookies, waffles, bread, or anything else, really. Cardamom adds an unusual and subtle perfume to these preserves. Though this recipe does take some time to complete, the majority of the cooking time is hands-off. The best part? You will not need to purchase pectin from the store!
