Plums are a very popular fruit in the Czech Republic. You can usually find at least one plum tree in every Czech garden. In autumn, a rich harvest is harvested, and plums are widely used to make plum jam.
Plum jam is typically used to fill sweet kolace or buchty. To make them taste even better, various enhancing ingredients are added.
