Sweet Canning Plums
It’s funny how every year I tend to end up with a bunch of the same fruit or berry. This year I’ve gotten so many plums from friends and family I have struggled with coming up with an idea for them all, but I figured a recipe for canned plums was a must. I simply can’t get enough of what autumn has to bring! These wonderful, sweet and delicious canning plums can stay in your cuppoard for years and still be as delicious- used in desserts or devoured as is straight from the jar!
When canning fruit and vegeatbles it is crucial to use clean, sanitized jars which can be done two ways; boil the jars for a couple of minutes in a saucepan or on the oven for 10 minutes on a 100 degrees celius.
I love canning fruit and vegetables for winter- it’s such a great way to keep what the autumn gives us and especially so we can enjoy fruit and vegetables all through winter.
My Nordic Kitchen’s First Video!
It was such a lovely day in september – the sun was out and we were canning plums all day! It was my first attempt on doing a recipe video as well- and god is it weird being infront of the camera, but fun nontheless. I can’t wait to do it more and get used to it.
I will publish it as soon as it’s done!
Got any recipes you wish to see in a video? Leave me a comment below and I will write it down for future reference!
