  • 4 cups plums, pitted and halved
  • 1/2 cup agave nectar
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder

  • 10 drops stevia

As fall approaches, my attention is shifting to our fruit trees. A few years back we planted a peach and two apple trees along the perimeter of our packed yard; they are now bursting with fruit, as is our dwarf plum. While we eat the peaches and apples straight off the trees, each fall we make a habit of picking the tart little plums and making our own homemade jam from them.
