Another kind neighbor gifted us with these prunes. This lady is almost 80 y.o. and her vegetable garden seems to come out from some book of the RHS. 
Each time I compare hers to ours I feel miserable. We have salads, carrots, tomatoes, zucchini and weeds. She has 2 m high tomatoes (once even won a competition for the taste) and her cabbages are so big you can easily imagine to find a baby under their leaves. No need to say she has no weeds at all.

Luckily for us she's so kind and so we can taste her prunes. She gave us a lot so I made this fool proof jam .


1 kg prunes (cut in small pieces and without stones)
500 g caster sugar
pectin (I use Fruttapec 2:1 Cameo)
Just mix the ingredients, bring to boil, boil 3 minutes, then put in clean and dry pots, close and sterilize in boiling water for 20 minutes.
