Plum jam is a fantastic versatile recipe that is truly so underrated.
We love having it on hand for creating sauces, using it as a topping (waffles, oatmeal, nice cream), or enjoying almond butter & jam sandwiches.
You will really enjoy how easy this recipe is to make but also how much flavor it carries. Need a wonderful gift for friends & families? Homemade jam is such a great beloved present.
In this post, I also included how to make prune paste which is a different spin on the classic date paste most people in the plant-based world are familiar with. I hope you'll give it a try also.
Our plum jam and prune paste also freeze wonderfully.

Plum Jam By: The Jaroudi Family
2 cups chopped ripe plums
*2 tbsp prune paste (or date paste) 1 tsp lemon juice lemon zest (optional)
2 tbsp chia seeds
In a medium, pot add in your chopped plums. Cook on medium-high heat and mix in date paste. Make sure you stir often and bring the mixture to a low simmer. Once the fruit is cooked down (around 3 minutes) turn off the heat. Add in lemon juice (zest) and chia seeds. Stir until well combined.
Let cool completely and store in the refrigerator for one week.
We love having plum jam on top of nice cream, oatmeal, waffles/pancakes, or anything you’d use jam for.
Prune Paste By: The Jaroudi Family
1 cup of prunes
1 cup of water
Blend ingredients together in a high-speed blender.
You want the mixture to be a smooth texture.
[If your blender is having trouble, you can soak the prunes in hot water.]
Store in the refrigerator for about one week. Freezes well.
I hope you'll give this recipe a try, and let us know if you liked them!
