Description

The taste of homemade apple pie in jam form. It really does taste like the real deal.

Ingredients

  • 6 cups Peeled And Diced Granny Smith Apples
  • ½ cups Water
  • ½ teaspoons Butter
  • 3 cups Regular Granulated Sugar
  • 2 cups Brown Sugar
  • ¾ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1 box Small Box Powdered Fruit Pectin

Preparation

Cook apples, water and butter over low heat, stirring until apples are soft but not mushy. Stir in pectin and bring to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Add sugars and cinnamon and bring back to a boil, stirring constantly, for one minute. Remove from heat and skim off foam (if there is any). If you feel the jam is not thick enough for your taste, add another small box of pectin. Start by adding half of the second box then go from there.

Pour into hot jars, leaving ¼” headspace. Process jars in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes. Makes 7 half-pints.

Note: 6 cups of diced apples = 6 to 7 medium-sized apples.

I have been wanting to make Apple Pie Jam for a few years now and, when I saw your recipe, it called to me, loud and clear–”HERE I AM, NOW MAKE ME!!” I made 2 batches a couple of weeks ago. I had some on a toasted english muffin yesterday and it was incredibly delicious. It really tasted just like my apple pie. I did make a couple of alterations to fit my tastes–instead of water, I used apple cider and I always use more spice than recipes using apples or pumpkin call for, so I used 2 heaping teaspoons of apple pie spice. Thank you for the recipe. It will get a place of honor in my “favorites” recipe box!!

How long can you store the Apple Pie Jam for and do you keep it in a dark cool place?

I can salsa, tomato sauce, hot pepper jelly, pickles and green salsa and I never process any of them in a hot water bath. I boil the jars, lids and seals. Filling the jars a few at a time to ensure they stay hot, seal them and bundle them all together in a couple towels. I’ve never had a problem w/sealing or spoiling – do you think this process would work for this jam?

Just finished making this, jars are cooling on the counter. So far it looks great. I used one box of powdered pectin and it gave a very nice jam consistency. I filled small jelly jars and they will be going into my Christmas goodie baskets. Thanks for the recipe.

Lovely! Here is what I did with the ingredients for those wanting to “double” the recipe:
12 c chopped apples
1 c water
1 tsp butter (unsalted)
4 c brown sugar
2 c white sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
4.7 oz jar powdered pectin

Follow directions as written and wow!

Tasty! Will be making another batch with 10 gallons of apples next weekend!! Thanks for sharing!

Oh, shoot, did I not review this? Sorry! I made this luscious jam last fall and am definitely making some again this year. It really does taste like apple pie! I used goldens for their natural sweetness, left about half the peels on for the extra pectin (and vitamins) and was able to cut out the white sugar completely. Still plenty sweet and set up perfectly. And the little half pints are easy to get through before they mold, so the loss of the preservative effect from the missing sugar is not an issue. I love LOVE the spices in this and the pleasant, tender apple chunks. It’s wonderful on toast, pancakes, cornbread, everything. Thank you so much for this winner. It was a hole in one for my first try at apple jam.

I made a batch to give as Christmas presents and I’m destined to make another batch because I simply can’t live without it. It’s that good.

The taste of this jelly is amazing! I think it will be a big hit with my Christmas gifts this year. However, my only complaint is that the apple pieces float to the top of the jelly jar, so there are no apple pieces in the bottom of the jar…it looks kind of funny. I guess it will just have to be mixed when the jar is opened. Any suggestions on how to fix this?
