How to Make Plum SquashHideShow Media
Squeeze the plums and discard the seeds.
Blend the plum mixture and strain the juice through a sieve.
Place the strained juice and sugar in a pan and stir over low heat till the sugar dissolves.
Once it dissolves, add the lemon juice and bring to a boil.
Cook for about five minutes, stirring all the time, so that it does not get caramelised.
Take the mixture off the heat and let it cool.
Mix in the potassium metabisulphite dissolved in one tbsp of boiled water.
Store in sterilised bottles.
