Blackberry Plum Pureed Jam

This recipe was conceived during an effort to use up fruit that I had purchased for other uses.The addition of a flavored balsamic was only thought of because I had purchased it that day and wondered what uses I could come up with for it.

4C blackberries
4C chopped black plums
4C sugar
1 lemon
2T black currant balsamic
As in all my jam making, the fruit must be washed, chopped and cooked down with the addition of sugar and the juice of one lemon. This recipe looked a little thin but I didn't want to reduce it any further because of the balsamic and I didn't want to add pectin. What was a girl supposed to do? Be flexible. I used an immersion blender and turned it into a "sauce". I can't wait to try it on a cheesecake with fresh berries encircling the rim.
This recipe makes 3 pints of jam.
