Flavored Apple Jam/Preserves/Jelly

We got bucket full of apple from a local apple farm and now my refrigerator is full of apples! Yesterday, vighnesh was asking me what’s for dinner. And I said "Apple"; He said "you are kidding right?” I said - "hmm.. Something with apple".

So this week is Apple week, Apple kai rasa , Apple Pizza , Just made Apple Jam yesterday . And couple of days later, I am planning to do Apple Pie.! . I said to myself "no more apples for couple week at least!”

So Today's recipe menu is Cinnamon, vanilla flavored Apple Jam:

Apples - Used 7 medium sized apples
Lemon juice - juice of 1/2 lemon or citric acid
2 cups of water
Sugar - 11/2 cups

Optional Ingredients - Skip all these if you are not planing for flavored apple jam

Cinnamon powder- 1 tbs
Vanilla extract - 1/2 tbs (You can check my home made vanilla recipe here )
Cardamom - 1/2 tbs

  • Peel, coarse and chop the apples.
  • In a large thick bottom pan, add chopped apples and water. Cook on medium flame until apples are soft and most of the water is absorbed.
  • Add sugar, lemon juice,  and optional ingredients.
  • Cook on a low-medium flame for 20-30 minutes stirring every now and then.
  • Mash the apples with potato masher to your required consistency.
  • Once the sugar moisture is absorbed and the mixture starts to stick to the bottom, Keep stirring the mixture with spatula.
  • Check for sweetness, add more if desired.
  • Jam will be ready when, it becomes thick and  forms like dough, it will take around 25-30 minutes.
  • If you are not sure when to stop cooking, check for the taste and you will know.
  • Turn off the heat and let it cool.
  • Store it in airtight container.
  • Enjoy the bread with homemade apple jam.
