This jam tastes just like Apple Pie - get ready to be addicted! This is a great, DELICIOUS way to use up extra apples in the fall. Also a great gift idea!
My thumb is finally healing from my apple-peeling incident, but things are not the same as before on the right side of my left hand. I have a band-aid covering it at all times because looking at it reminds me of the pain. I would prefer never to experience anything like that again.
I promised I would continue to post some apple recipes, so here is another delicious one. It took me THREE batches to get this jam just right. It was worth the effort (shout out to my apple peeler!) because I learned an important lesson: DO NOT OVERCOOK. Even if the mixture appears runny, do not cook past the 20-minute mark or you will have an apple-jam ROCK on your hands. Try cleaning that out of a pan. Like slicing a huge chunk of flesh from your thumb, it is not super fun or recommended.
We all LOVED this stuff. I caught Elijah a handful of times in the fridge with a SPOON, eating this straight out of the jar.
Enjoy! And be careful with those sharp knives, people!
