Chai Spiced Plum Jam

Chai Spiced Plum Jam

The great thing about making small batches of this jam is you can use what you have – even 2-3 plums, just remember the ratio of fruit is equal to the ratio of sugar ☺️

Chai Spiced Plum Jam (small batch)


1:1 ratio of fruit to sugar e.g.
300g Plums
300g Sugar
1tsp chai spice (ground cardamom,cloves, cinnamon)
10ml lemon juice


1. Roughly chop plums and add to a small pot with sugar, lemon juice and ground spices.
2. Simmer on medium heat until it reaches 104 degrees Celsius.
3. Sterilize a jar and fill with hot jam, seal lid tightly and refrigerate after opening.

Tips: You can leave the skins on your plums but if you want your jam to be clear and not cloudy it’s best to remove them.

If you don’t have a thermometer, you can check soft ball stage by either using some iced water or putting a saucer into the freezer and testing blobs of jam to see if it makes a soft ball with your fingers.
