As the name states, we use Damson plums for this old-time favorite jam. It's scrumptious on toast, but even better mixed with our Sweet & Sour Grilling Sauce and a little brown sugar and poured over your favorite meatballs.

  • Spread it on toast, bagels, muffins, and anything else you want to add a burst of sweetness to
  • Elevate your cheese, yogurt, or other dairy products by adding a spoonful of flavorful fruit jelly, jam, preserve or marmalade
  • Add to your store-bought glazes, sauces, and dressings to make them sing!
  • Gluten free
  • Made at Kitchen Kettle Village in Lancaster County, from our own special recipe

Ingredients: Plum Puree, Sugar, Corn Syrup, Water, Pectin.

Manufactured in a facility that handles peanuts, eggs, and soy.

Glaze for Meatballs


A scrumptious glaze for meatballs!


  • 1-10 oz. (1/2 pt.) jar Kitchen Kettle Damson Plum Jam*
  • 1/2 cup Kitchen Kettle Barbeque Sauce/Sweet & Sour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar


Prepare meatballs according to your favorite recipe and brown. Mix above ingredients and pour over meatballs. Simmer about 15 minutes.

*Try other Kitchen Kettle jams such as Jalapeno Jam for a hot & spicy sauce or Grape Jelly, Blueberry Preserves, Raspberry Preserves or any other flavor you prefer. Also good as a glaze for ham or chicken.

At Kitchen Kettle we refer to our jars using three standard sizes:

  • Half Pints - 8 ounces in volume
  • Pints - 16 ounces in volume
  • Quarts - 32 ounces in volume

We are required to label our jars with the actual net weight of the contents, rather than the volume. You'll notice our Half Pint jars will vary between 8 ounces and 10 ounces in net weight; our Pint jars range from 16 ounces to 20 ounces in net weight; and our Quart jars weigh between 32 and 36 ounces.

Why do the net weighs vary? Although we use the same size jar, a jam made with chunks of fruit will weigh more than a jelly that's made with just the juice of a fruit. 

If you have any questions about our jars sizes, we're happy to help! Give us a call at 800-717-6198 or email us at sales@kitchenkettle.com

A Lovely Sentimental Christmas Gift

My 79-year-old mom was walking down memory lane & mentioned that her grandmother used to make Damson plum jam from the fruit of a tree on the farm she grew up on. I found Kitchen Kettle through an internet search, and my brother bought two jars of the jam for my mom's stocking for Christmas. She absolutely loves it - so much so that she asked me to order two more jars for her cousin for a late holiday gift. Thank you for this unexpected treat. Out of everything my mom got, this was far and away her favorite gift. We will definitely be ordering again!
