To add a little bit of luxury to your greengage jam, scrape the seeds of a vanilla pod in whilst cooking.
Fruity white wines such as Viognier and Gewürztraminer make an interesting, zingy substitution for the water.
Plums go well with other stone fruits like peach, nectarine and apricot so if you have an abundance of these then try mixing them together.
Greengage jam goes brilliantly with cheese, especially Gruyère, spread on crusty white bread for an afternoon treat or serve with crackers for an after dinner cheeseboard.
Gooseberry jam is also great to use in baking, try using it instead of raspberry in a bakewell tart, smothered on a scone or piped inside a doughnut.
