> 4 cups (about 6–8) chopped plums
> 1/2 cup sugar
> 1 cinnamon stick
> 1 orange
> 3 tbsp low-sugar or no-sugar-needed pectin


To a heavy-duty medium pot, add the plums, ½ cup water, sugar, and cinnamon stick. From the orange, grate zest of entire fruit and squeeze ¼ cup juice. Add to pot.
Heat on medium-high and cook 4–5 min., until plums begin to soften, stirring occasionally. Stir in the pectin. Heat to a vigorous boil on high and cook mixture 2 min., until slightly thickened, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Discard cinnamon stick.
Let jam cool slightly, then ladle into jars. Cool completely, then seal and refrigerate 2 hours, until set.
