Santa Rosa Plum Jam

Hi all! My family has a Santa Rosa plum tree in our yard and just love eating plums fresh from the tree. Some many of our plums have begun to ripen and fall from the tree so I thought jam would be a great way to use them. 
Santa Rosa Plum Jam(more like sauce***not thick but great flavor)
-4 cups of plums, pitted
-1 cup or sugar 
-the juice from 1/2 of a small lemon 
-To begin, add all the ingredients to a large pot and stir together.
-Next, place the pot on the stove on low-medium heat, stirring constantly.
-I used a electronic hand mixer to break the plum into smaller pieces.
-Take care not to boil or burn your jam.
-The jam will simmer for about 30 minutes until it is a slightly thick sauce.
-Allow sauce to cool then pour into glass jars and chill in refrigerator to further thicken th the jam.

-Enjoy with butter on toast or English muffins or try over vanilla ice cream :-).
