Marmellata di Prugne al Forno (Baked Plum Jam)

This is an easy recipe to make at home with impressive results when plums are in season. It doesn't need too much attention and it is practically ready in 1 1/2 hour. I like to serve this jam on toast or as the filling for crostatas or tart.

Baked Plum Jam

  • 5 pounds plums
  • 1 1/2 pounds of sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • zest of one orange

Pit and slice the plums and mix them with all the sugar.

Let the mixture macerate overnight covered with plastic wrap. 
The next day,  place the mixture in a baking dish and add one cinnamon stick and orange zest. 
Bake for 90 minutes at 420 F.

Store in jars in the fridge for 2 weeks
