i tried making plum jam this week. i couldn't find low-sugar pectin but tried to make a low-sugar recipe anyway and it didn't set. i haven't had that problem before, i just cook it longer but no matter what i did it still wouldn't gel up. i canned it anyway so it wouldn't spoil and i had already sterilized everything. so what to do with it? i'm too embarrassed to give away "compote."
