This wintry jam is the perfect festive treat to enjoy with all the cheeses of Christmas. This sweet and sour plum jam is made from great-grandmother's recipe with Swedish Victoria plums and has been flavored with cinnamon and cardamom for that special Christmas feeling that you can't miss! A sense of just enough fragrance to not leave anyone out in the cold during the winter months.
In midwinter as well as in the borderland between the seasons, when the weather is not decided, there are still sunny rays and sometimes warming winds. For these moments, there are few jams that fit as well as this apricot-colored decoction that could be named after life itself. A rarely tasted "cheese flavor enhancer" with delicately balanced flavor nuances where all are still allowed to emerge. With a taste that appeals to many, this jam is suitable for everyday use as well as for parties.
A wonderful plum jam made according to great-grandmother's recipe of our own Swedish Victoria plums, a classic variety with yellow-red, beautiful plums with a sweet and sour taste.

Plums are a classic stone fruit and are related to cherries, apricots and almonds. The plum tree is a deciduous tree that blooms in early spring with small white or pale pink flowers. The fruits ripen from late summer to autumn. Plum trees require full sun and well-drained soil. The fruit can either be eaten fresh, dried, used for jam or marmalade. An example of a dessert is plums in Madeira. Sweet and sour, juicy plums are lovely to harvest from your own trees. Because the fruits are shock sensitive, they are difficult to handle in the trade and therefore a perfect fruit for the home garden
The history of the plum can be traced back to over 1000 years ago and is believed to have originated in the Caucasus, it was bred as a cross between two different plants. The sloe berry (Prunus Spinosa) and the cherry plum (Cerasus Cerasifera). It is believed that humans have been cultivating this fruit for almost their entire existence on earth, which means they must have known how delicious these juicy little berries taste!
Plums are a great addition to your diet because they are high in antioxidants and have a low glycemic index. The most popular is chlorogenic acid, which has been found to have other health benefits such as fighting cancer cells or lowering blood sugar levels in people who eat them regularly!
Plums are a healthy fruit that is full of antioxidants and nutrients. Chlorogenic acid is the same antioxidant found in coffee, for example! Plums also happen to be low on our popular glycemic index, so they're perfect if you want a little extra insurance against diabetes or other blood sugar-related ailments—plus, plums can help cut your calorie intake by providing bulk without filling you up too quickly while they're flavorful enough to leave us feeling satisfied after eating one ourselves (although there's nothing wrong with indulging once in a while).
