Spiced Plum Preserve
My second process with the teas was with a Plum preserve infused with an Indian Spice tea.
- 8 pc. medium plums -small chopped - do not remove the peel
- 1 cup hot water
- 1 teaspoon Indian Spice Tea from Vices & Spices
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 package powdered pectin
In a large coffee mug add 1 cup boiling water then add the tea ball with the Indian Spice tea.
Cover and seep for 15 minutes.
In a dutch oven add the plums and begin cooking them down. Stir frequently as plums have a tendency to burn.
After 15 minutes add the tea water and then add the ball to the pot. Continue to cook for another 10 minutes at a full boil.
Add the sugar and return to boil then add the pectin and boil for an additional 2 minutes.
Remove the tea ball from the recipe. Make sure the consistency of the recipe is now where you want it. If its still a bit thin continue to cook it down a bit.
Ladle recipe into jars and water bath for 10 minutes at a full boil. Makes 4 half pints.
