Apples are one of the best things about fall. Whether you are a caramel apple fan, or you enjoy apple pie or apple cider, apples have always been a favorite for fall. Now you can caramel apple jam to the pile as well.
Things You’ll Need:
* 6 cups dices, peeled apples
* 1/2 cup water
* 1/2 tsp butter
* 1 package powdered pectin
* 3 cups sugar
* 2 cups packed brown sugar
* 4 half pint jars
* large kettle
In a large kettle, combine the apples, water and butter. Cook and stir over low heat until the apples are soft. Stir in the pectin and bring the heat up to a rolling boil. Stir constantly.
Add the sugar and brown sugar and return to a rolling boil. If you would like to add a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg, now is the time to do it, but it is not required. Boil for one minute, stirring constantly.
Remove from the heat and skim off any foam. Ladle the hot jam into hot sterilized jars, leaving 1/4 inch head space. Adjust the caps so they are on tightly. Submerge the jars in a boiling water bath for ten minutes. You will hear pops as the jars are sealed shut and the safety buttons suck in.
*This jam goes really well with toast.
*Not recommended with peanut butter.
