I may have tweaked this a bit and I used home-made elderberry wine which is already spiced because I use it for mulled wine at Christmas but I think supermarket mulled wine would do the trick and then you don't have to add many spices.
1.8kg (4lbs) red plums - halved and stoned
375mls (13fl oz) red wine
Mulled wine spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves but you could use those sachets of spices for mulling wine.
A piece of orange zest from about a quarter of an orange - without the pith.
1.8kg (4lb) granulated sugar
Put the plums and wine in a large pan.
Place the mulled wine spices and orange zest in a muslin bag and add to the pan. Bring to the boil and boil rapidly for about ten minutes or until the setting point is reached. Remove any scum from the surface.
Pour the jam into warm, sterilized jars etc., etc.
A good point about this jam is that using wine means it keeps it's lovely colour.
