"Sweet home Alabama, where the skies are so blue. Sweet Home Alabama, Lord, I'm coming home to youuuuu." Yes, it's movie time again! I can honestly not believe that it took me 27 years to finally watch 'Sweet Home Alabama' but I am so glad I finally did, not only because it gave me the inspiration to make my own plum jam, but also because it really is a great…
