It's plum season! A friend of ours has a plum tree that gives, gives and gives more all summer long. Last weekend they dropped off a big bowl of  SUPER ripe ones...so my husband, the AMAZING jam maker that he is made some plum jelly. For those of you like me that don't know the ins and out of jellies and jams....jellies are more liquidy, while jams are a little bit more dense. So now that we have a dozen jars of jelly :)....we shared a few with friends and then on the Fourth of July we experimented with different ways of using these jars of deliciousness....my favorite being Plum Jelly Lime Spritzer's!
