    3 1/2   lb           Ripe plums
    3       lb           Ripe Concord grapes
    1       c            Water
      1/2   ts           Butter or margarine (opt.)
                         - to reduce foaming
    8 1/2   c            Sugar
    1 3/4   oz           Powdered pectin
 
   Yield: About 10 half-pints
   
   Procedure: Wash and pit plums; do not peel. Thoroughly
   crush the plums and grapes, one layer at a time, in a
   saucepan with water. Bring to a boil, cover, and
   simmer 10 minutes. Strain juice through a jelly bag or
   double layer of cheesecloth. Measure sugar and set
   aside. Combine 6-1/2 cups of juice with butter and
   pectin in large saucepan. Bring to a hard boil over
   high heat, stirring constantly. Add the sugar and
   return to a full rolling boil. Boil hard for 1 minute,
   stirring constantly. Remove from heat, quickly skim
   off foam, and fill sterile jars, leaving 1/4-inch
   headspace. For more information on how to sterilize
   jars see “Jars and Lids”.
