Canning Plums

I canned plums tonight and it was a learning experience (to say the least). I had never canned plums before nor do I remember mom or grandma canning them. So I did my research and used one of the canning books I have.

What did I learn? You should peel plums before canning them. I also learned that you should only can very firm plums as a little mushiness turns into a lot mushiness when you boil them.

I was a little disappointed that I only ended up with 3 pints.... I didn't want to do a huge batch as I wasn't sure how it would work. But I was hoping for 5 or 6 jars. Not sure if I'll make more but I did learn a few things for the future.
