Ingredients

  • 3lb apples
  • 1lb plums
  • 12oz sugar to each pint of pulp

    Method

    Peel and core the apples and cut them in slices, and cook in very little water until soft. Add stoned plums and cook until soft. Put through a sieve, measure and add sugar. Boil to setting point and put into warm jars. This is a stiff’butter’. It may be used with bread and butter, or if put into straight-sided jars, it can be turned out, sliced and eaten with cream as a ‘spoon sweet’.
