30 Minutes To Homemade SURE.JELL Plum Freezer Jam

3 cups prepared fruit (buy about 2 lb. fully ripe plums)
3/4 cup water, divided
5-1/2 cups sugar, measured into separate bowl
1 box SURE-JELL Fruit Pectin


Rinse clean plastic containers and lids with boiling water. Dry thoroughly. Pit and finely chop unpeeled plums. Mix plums and 1/4 cup of the water in small saucepan. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 5 min. Measure exactly 3 cups prepared plums into large bowl. Stir in sugar. Let stand 10 min., stirring occasionally. Mix remaining 1/2 cup water and pectin in small saucepan. Bring to boil on high heat, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 min. Add to fruit mixture; stir 3 min. or until sugar is dissolved and no longer grainy. (A few sugar crystals may remain.) Fill all containers immediately to within 1/2 inch of tops. Wipe off top edges of containers; immediately cover with lids. Let stand at room temperature 24 hours. Jam is now ready to use. Store in refrigerator up to 3 weeks or freeze extra containers up to 1 year. Thaw in refrigerator before using.
