> Wash the mirabelles. Stem them, open them in half without detaching them to pit them.

> Squeeze the juice from the lemons.

> Prepare an infusion with the lime blossom and 25 cl of boiling water, filter it through cheesecloth.

> Pour the sugar, lemon juice and the infusion into a jam basin. Bring to a boil, stirring with a spatula, simmer until syrupy (about 10 min).

> Add the mirabelle plums and cook for 10 min. Remove from heat, pour into a bowl and let macerate for 12 hours.

> Cook for another 10 minutes in the jam bowl. Check the doneness by pouring a few drops on a cold sloping plate: the jam should set.

> Place in scalded and dried jars. Cover while hot.
