Just follow the directions here for a delicious summertime jam.
In a large, heavy, nonreactive skillet, combine the plums, nectarines, sugar and lemon juice. Using a potato masher, mash the mixture well. Let stand for 2 hours, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon.
Bring the fruit mixture to a boil, stirring constantly, and let simmer until thickened, 30 to 40 minutes. Skim off any white foam that has accumulated on the surface. Ladle the hot jam through a wide-mouthed funnel into 5 half-pint jars, and chill. Keep covered in the refrigerator.
