Directions:
In a large kettle, simmer plums and water until tender, about 30 minutes. Pour through a damp jelly bag, allowing juice to drip into a bowl. Measure 5-1/2 cups of juice; return to the kettle. Add pectin; stir and bring to a boil. Add sugar; bring to a full rolling boil. Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; skim off any foam. Pour hot into hot jars, leaving 1/4-in. headspace. Adjust caps. Process for 5 minutes in a boiling-water bath. Yield: about 8 half-pints.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
There are tons of wild plums around. We have several bushes on our farm. I would be happy to share. This is a good jelly too and Grandma Kadavy made this too. Probably not the same recipe. Try it, I think you will love it. Again, only one batch at a time, do not try to double.
