Plum Jam with Star Anise and Pine Nuts

Now is the time to make jam! A way to preserve the taste of all the lovely fruit of late summer. I have spotted some great jam recipes lately. This one here is probably one of my favourite jam recipes ever. Plums and star anise are a great flavour combination. And the color is beautiful, isn't it?!

(from: Annemarie Wildeisen's Kochen 9/2012)

For about 4 glasses of 0.25l:

1kg plums
2 star anis
500 jam sugar
juice of 1 lemon
50g pine nuts

Wash the plums and dry with a kitchen towel. Stone the plums and cut into small pieces. Put into a large pan together with the jam sugar and the star anis and let stand for about an hour.

After an hour, add the lemon juice and bring to the boil while constantly stirring. Add the pine nuts. Let cook for about 5 minutes. Fill the boiling jam into cleaned, preheated glasses and seal them. Then turn them upside down for about a minute (kills the fungus spores) and then turn around again and let cool.
