Apple Pie Jam…a Delicious Treat
The Taste Of Autumn
If you love Apple Pie you are going to fall in love with this delicious recipe for Apple Pie Jam. I am very lucky where I live to get apples locally at our orchard for only 25 cents a pound! I have dried so much fruit this fall! First peaches, then pears, and finally apples. I was really glad when I was done and I feel lucky to be able to do this for my family with all that is going on in our country. We love jam in our family. My mom use to can all different kids of jam. I loved her raspberry and strawberry freezer jam the best. I made lots of freezer jam this year as well. I also froze a lot of fruit for smoothies. You can make lots of things with apples, we love Apple Cobbler, Apple Bread, Apple Pie, Apple Muffins, Applesauce, dry some in your dehydrator and of course this make this yummy jam.You can use a variety of apples to make this jam. One of my favorites is Granny Smith and Honeycrisp apples.This jam is scrumptious on your English muffins, pancakes,waffles, ice cream, or use it to make your next peanut butter and jelly sandwich! The beauty of this jam is that you cook it slow and let the natural pectin in the apples do its job. (No pectin needed) Remember Grandma did not use pectin and she made delicious jams.A good way to tell if the jam is ready is to dunk a spoon in the mixture and hold it over the pan. If there is a slow drip off the back side of the spoon, the consistency is perfect and it’s ready to pull off the heat.What you will need for this recipe…Apples…..2 granny smith applesSugar…..to sweeten the applesLemon Juice...this counters some of the sweetness.Lemon Zest..It's often used with or without lemon juice to add tangy flavor to recipes.
