Country Apple Jam


apple jam

As soon as it made it onto the breakfast table, this jam instantly became a family favorite! Bits of soft apple give this jam an "autumn flavor"....you'll feel like you're eating fresh pie. Unlike most jams, this one is sweetened with brown sugar, which gives it an appealing look and an even better taste. The dash of nutmeg gives it the exotic flavor we love - we're sure this one will quickly become one of your favorites!

Country Apple Jam

6 C. peeled and finely diced apples (we used Pink Lady)

1/2 C. water

1/2 tsp. butter

1 package powdered fruit pectin

3 C. granulated sugar

2 C. packed brown sugar

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

Mix apples, water, and butter in large pot. Cook over low heat, stirring, until apples are soft (but not mushy).

Stir in pectin. Bring to a full boil, stirring constantly.

Add sugars, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Return to a rolling boil and continue to boil, stirring constantly for 1 minute or until sugars are dissolved.

Pour into hot sterilized jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Wipe rims of jars with damp cloth; screw on clean lids and rims.

Water bath for 10 minutes. Makes 7 half-pints.
