Jocelyn's Plum Jam

My brother has a friend, Jocelyn, who is a girl after my own heart.  She's getting her doctorate in English (i.e. way smarter than me, but we love the same thing!), and she, too, loves to cook.

One of the other things that I loved about Jocelyn is that she is resourceful.  Plum trees grow like crazy in CA, and refusing to let a good thing go to waste, she gathers their fruit and makes jam.  When my sisters and I showed interest in her jam-making, Jocelyn brought us each a jar of plum jam to take home with us.

The first morning that Chef Reiton and I got back to the Midwest, we made a stack of buttered toast and cracked open Jocelyn's jam.


Ohhhh, my.  Deliciously plummy and not too sweet.  A perfect breakfast.
