Ingredients of Apple Jam

  • 1 kg apples - cored and chopped
  • 1 kg sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon - powdered (optional)

How to Make Apple Jam

  • 1.Put the apples in a steel or glass container, cover with water and keep overnight.
  • 2.Transfer to a heavy-based sauce pan, bring to a boil and cook till soft.
  • 3.Strain through a soup strainer or blend and strain.
  • 4.Put back onto the stove and bring to a boil again and cook, stirring to avoid scorching.
  • 5.When slightly thinner than jam consistency, add the sugar, lemon juice and dalchini.
  • 6.Lower the heat and keep stirring till sugar is dissolved (not letting it coming to a boil before that).
  • 7.When sugar is dissolved, bring to a boil and cook, stirring all the time (else it will caramelize at the bottom and change flavour).
  • 8.When a drop placed over a cold surface sets, the jam is ready.
  • 9.Store in sterilized, airtight jars.
