kompot-

Kompot (or fruit juice) is a sweetened beverage that is cooked by adding desired fruit and a sweetener with water. The drink can either be served hot or cold and can be easily preserved, like this recipe.

One of the fondest memories growing up was all the canning my mother did during the summer. We always had so many goodies to open in the winter. Plum kompot is definitely a favorite I remember. It’s surprisingly extremely simple and quick to can. You will have this delicious homemade plum punch during the winter.

Once you open the jars, you can add hot water if it’s too sweet for you and you want the drinks served hot.

How to make canned plum kompot with majon jars.how to make kompot-

  • Prepare jars: Wash them in hot, soapy water and rinse. Dry in oven at about 250°F for about 10-15 minutes. I just turn my oven off and keep the jars in there until I am ready to use them, this way they stay slightly warm.
  • Prepare canner: Pour water into your water bath canner. Just enough so when jars have submerged the level of the water will be about 1”-2” below the lid.
  • Bring water to a boil. Add rack on the bottom of the canner.
  • I always like to place a small kitchen towel on top of the rack for added security that jars won’t burst (this is not necessary), if you don’t have a rack, add the kitchen towel, it’s a great alternative.
  • Prepare plums: Wash the plums.
  • Prepare the syrup: For the syrup, combine water with sugar and bring to a boil.
  • Can plums: Pack jars with washed plums. Pour syrup into jars. Clean tops of cans. Close lids, screw the rings on just enough for them to seal but don’t screw too hard as air bubbles may need to escape during cooking.
  • Cook plums for 15 minutes in the water canner.
  • Remove from water and tighten rings on jars. Place towel on countertop or table. Flip jars over. Cover with another towel or small blanket. Leave overnight.
  • Enjoy, friends.
