Spiced or citrusy?
That was the question our neighbor J asked as she handed us two separate jars of homemade plum jam. J was fortunate enough to have a plum tree in her backyard. Toward the end of summer you could be certain to find her holed up in the kitchen making batches of plum jams, jellies, and catsup. And as long as I'd known her, she'd been tweaking and fine tuning her jam recipe.
