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.

Mirj, really love your jam! What a perfect way to use up plums! The ginger and lemon give this just the zip it needs! Thanks for a lovely recipe!

I loved this recipe but I used lime instead of lemons. Really lovely, would make it again!

Love the flavors! Had a batch of plain plum jam that wasn't very flavorful, so I simmered it with some fresh ginger and lemon zest and WOW does it taste good now. My original recipe was similar to this one, but I didn't add any water. Thanks for a great recipe!

Fantastic jam - thank you for sharing the recipe. I made it with Victoria plums which worked very well. It's been a big hit with everyone who's tried it!

Yummy...what a twist on ginger and plums. My yellow plum tree was loaded this year and I have ALOT of plums to put up. I was looking for a different recipe to make up some jam and found yours. VERY good, will use again.
