Oops, sorry.

dl = (I assume) deciliter (1/10 of a liter)
dkg = dekagram (0.01 kg or 10 grams)

My kitchen scale measures in either ounces or grams, but I'm sure there are conversions online. I also wouldn't be surprised if some kitchen site has weights of flour and sugar converted to cups.

btw, I should also add that "knead the ingredients together" doesn't mean to knead the dough like bread, just to mix it all together with your hands.

Plum Jam

Makes about 2 1/2 cups

1 pound plums, halved and stoned
2 cups (450g) warmed sugar

Place the plums in a pan with 1/2 cup water and bring to a simmer, then cook gently for 10 minutes until the plums are soft but still intact.

Add the warmed sugar to the fruit and stir over a low heat until all the sugar has dissolved, then turn up the heat and boil rapidly to reach setting point. Skim if necessary.

Pour the jam into hot, sterilized jar and seal.

This was simple, but good, as a vegetable side dish. Amounts are to taste:

Roman fava (broad) beans

tablespoon or two of olive oil
pancetta, cut into small pieces (I used regular ham, not having any pancetta on hand)
fava beans, shelled
shallot or 1/4 small onion, diced

Saute pancetta/ ham and onion/ shallot for a few minutes in olive oil, until onion is limp or lightly browned. Add fava beans, stir and cook for a minute or two. Add water (barely cover beans), put a lid on the pot and simmer for 8-15 minutes, until beans are cooked through. Remove lid, boil off any remaining water if necessary.
