As we're right in the middle of Autumn, we're also right in the middle of apple season. Whether you're out apple picking yourself or simply picking them up in bulk from the grocery store, chances are you've got apple in abundance going on in your life. (Or at least you should. Because apples are amazing.) Here is a recipe for Lebanese-style apple jam. It's not all too different from your standard apple jam, but perhaps swaps out cinnamon, nutmeg, and typical autumnal spices for fruit juices like lemon, grape, or orange. I'd suggest trying all three juices out and jarring your own delicious variations! (Also, jarred preserves do make great gifts! Hint hint.) ----------------------------------------------------------- Apple Jam 2 1/2 lbs. tart apples, pared and cored 5 cups sugar (or to taste) 3/4 cup lemon, grape, or orange juice 3/4 cup water 1 3/4 ounces of powdered fruit pectin 1. Chop apples finely. (The 2 1/2 lbs. should measure to about 7 cups of chopped apples.) 2. Mix apples, fruit juice, and water in a large container. Bring to boil, stirring constantly while cooking for 5 minutes. 3. Add pectin and sugar. Stir and bring to boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and skim off foam as it forms on the surface. Pour while hot into clean jars. Seal immediately.
Didn't know how this was you made jam. Will try it out now that I know it's so simple!
@TechAtHeart that sounds like a great idea! I love persimmons :)
@EightyNine You should! Jarring and canning are really good ways of preserving your favorite fruit flavors as those fruits go out of season.
@flymetothemoon @TechAtHeart I love persimmons! I was trying to explain them to my sister a few days ago, in fact. They're like plum textured apples, hahaah.
@flymetothemoon me too! so awesome, I haven't found many people who like it!
