Wild Plum Jelly
Total TimePrep: 55 min. Process: 5 min.
Makesabout 8 half-pints
We used the recipe exactly as recommended and it set and was slightly tart. I needed every bit of the sugar the recipe called for. We did boil down and strain the fruit. However, it is important to keep in mind the kind of plum that is being used. Ours were definitely wild and definitely on the start side. Loved it.

Hi Cbick,We don't recommend altering the sugar in any recipe that's processed. It can change the outcome of the recipe significantly, including the safety of the final product.Sue StetzelOnline Community / Field Editor ManagerTaste of Home Magazine
I followed this recipe exactly. It set up nicely and is very pretty however it is way too sweet. I think I would be happier with 1/2 the amount of sugar...
This recipe is so good. The only thing I did different was increase the sugar by one cup. I have made this four times and it always turns out great. I also get two more half pints than what it says it makes.
I've never made jelly before and this recipe turned out just like my mothers. It was very easy to prepare and I was very pleased with the final product. Thanks.
Just finished making this Jelly from my own Native Plum Trees! The recipe was easy to follow and worked perfectly. It is delicious!
This is a great jelly! We have lots of wild plums lining our country roads and I hate to see them go to waste! I have made this every year and our 4 kids love to have it with their breakfast! Thanks for a great recipe!
It's a bit extra work preparing the plum juice, but so worth the work. The jelly color is beautiful and great as gifts. The jelly is so clear you can see thru it in the jars. I found the color was dependent upon how red the plum skins were.
Modified this so it would work in my jam maker, I used an immersion blender to break up the plums to make jam instead of jelly. Came out beautiful, great color & flavor. It is so pretty I am going to give it as gifts for Xmas.
