Fresh picked plums ~ Jam anyone?

One of my favorite things about this time of year is that it is the time when we can pick fresh plums, right from our own yard.

This afternoon while little Jane was napping, Daddy and Jane went outside and picked some plums.They came in with 1 and a half ice cream pails full (and there is more to be picked).

fresh picked plumsThese plums taste delicious on their own, but I was thinking it may be fun to try to make some homemade Plum Jam. I searched online and found a few recipes. I think this one looks great and I like that it does not need pectin.

Do you have any other ideas or recipes of what we could make using these fresh juicy plums?

I think you can possibly do a fruit tart too - just a tart shell, plum and a custard would be awesome!
