  3. Put the plum jamback into the pot, turn on the flame and cook on medium - low heat, stirring often, for 45 minutes - 1 hour. To check if the jam is ready just put one drop of marmalade on a plate that you have put ina a freezer for 10 minutes. If the drop becomes dense in a short time then the marmalade is ready. Transfer boiling hot marmalade to sterile, airtight containers. Close the lid and turn the jars upside down to create the vacuum effect. It can be kept opened in the fridge for about a week.
