I've just been handed a box of Greengage Plums & I'd like to make some juice & can it. I love canned plums but the family doesn't but will drink the syrup they're canned in. Anybody got a recipe for Plum Juice. I figure I can just make a medium syrup, cooked with the plums, then blend & strain several times, then put in quarts & process. Anybody tried this out? Maybe I should go whole hog & make Plum Wine for the Death Float next year. Wear your Mae Wests

I like to search when I'm stumped. This is all they had, though there was a Schnitzbrot recipe (German fruitcake sort of) which seemed to call for the plums to be made into prunes first! I like this site; the recipes are submitted by people all over kind of like Sploofus.

Just one more thing to do with those plums!

You need a juicer. A good juicer will give you juice from essentially anything containing juice. As a caveat, the one thing all juicers tell you not to juice is seeded grapes. Those rock hard little seed wreak havoc on the blades and you will find yourself replacing them before too long.

I have a Champion Juicer. It is a commercial grade machine and a touch expensive, but it is the best juicer on the market, bar none. You can probably buy a pretty juicer centifugal juicer at most stores that handle small appliances. I am certain places like Costco, Walmart, Meijer, Target will all have them. They will give you about 2/3 to 3/4 the juice of a Champion, but will cost 1/2 as much.

If you let it sit for a while, will it become prune juice?

here you go Randy... My Grandma used this for grape, apple, peach and blackberry juice too. We had juices all winter. Sometimes she would make a fresh batch of jelly from her canned juices.

Plum Juice

Halve washed plums, stones do not have to be removed.

Place plums in a saucepan and add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer slowly until plums are very soft. Strain through a damp jelly bag or double layers of cheesecloth.

Refrigerate juice for 24 to 48 hours. Without mixing, carefully pour off clear liquid and save; discard sediment. If desired, strain through cheesecloth again for a clearer juice.

Add juice to a saucepan and sweeten to taste. Heat and stir until sugar is dissolved. Continue heating, stirring occasionally, until juice begins to boil.

Fill jars immediately, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Adjust lids and process.

Recommended process time for Plum Juice in a boiling-water canner:

Pints or Quarts
Altitudes of 0 - 1,000 ft -- 5 minutes
Altitudes of 1,001- 6,000 ft --10 minutes
Altitudes Above 6,000 ft -- 5 minutes

Altitudes of 0 - 1,000 ft -- 10 minutes
Altitudes of 1,001- 6,000 ft -- 15 minutes
Altitudes Above 6,000 ft -- 20 minutes

"Pints or Quarts
Altitudes Above 6,000 ft -- 5 minutes"

should read:
"Pints or Quarts
Altitudes Above 6,000 ft -- 15 minutes"

i really need a proofreader.

I adore plum wine. The Japanese do it well!

I also adore plum jelly. I just wash the plums, maybe cut them in two, depending on how large they are. Add a little water and cook them until they are mushy and done. I squish them thru a collander and there's your juice. You can follow a recipe on the packaged stuff, like Sure Jell, and mine always turns out great. Plum jelly is my grandson's favorite.
I adore pomegranate a bit more!

Sadly Rowlanda, yet another medication is starting to fail. I'm just trying to get some work done before I can't, yet again I'm going to pit the plums after I take a nap & then freeze them, for a batch of jam & some juice later. Don't want to get only half way through the job. Thanks on the WP, I've been struggling of late, but that was a good one for me

Lodi, I don't think we should have prune juice on Float, might make for an explosive disaster
