      This is a wonderful recipe. I doubled it since I had more fruits and given in the recipe and I used the minced ginger already prepared for sushis. The taste is out of this world, deliciously tickeling the buds with ginger and lemon. From now on, I will use this recipe for my plum jams. Thanks Mirj! Addition: I presented it at a local fair and it won 3rd prize. Thought that you would like to know.
