  • Caramel Apple Jam

    6 cups peeled and diced Granny Smith or Gala apples
    1/2 cup water
    1/2 teaspoon butter
    1 package powdered fruit pectin
    3 cups granulated sugar
    2 cups packed brown sugar
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

    Mix apples, water and butter. 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 rolling boil and continue to boil, stirring constantly for 1 minute. Remove from heat; skim foam.

    Pour into hot jars leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Process in boiling water bath for 10 minutes.

    Yields 7 1/2 pints.

  • Sure-Jell has a good recipe for apple jelly. I see apple "jam" as apple butter - peel, core, and chop apples, put in the crock pot with some sugar & cinnamon, and let cook all day, stirring occasionally. When done use a whisk to stir and cook another hour on high without lid (to help thicken it).
