Diabetic friendly plum jam

Jams, jellies and preserves are an absolute delight to have. Sweet and easy to have a version of the fruit they actually make life easier on some days. When they come in lovely colours up your kitchen shelf they are a beautiful decor too.
Now my mission was to create a sugar-free version for my jam loving husband. Most tart fruits turn sourer when the condense to form jam and this often made the sugar free  version quite difficult.
When I picked up a bag of plums the thought of converting into a jam was overriding all the ideas in head, but for sure it had to be sugarfree and additive free, otherwise, it doesn’t serve the purpose.
So here we are with a simple easy stovetop version of a beautiful red plum jam.
I have to admit among the texture of most jams, I like the way the plum condensed, released the colour from its peel and thickened up beautifully. It is genuinely honey sweet with no addition at all. So glad it worked and perched well for breakfast in a form all of us can have a scoop. So it is absolutely fun to pick a bit of overripe fruit and don the plant power do the magic. This is an excellent recipe to use wisely for any sweet craving that you encounter if you are on a weight loss diet, for it is pure fruit.
