Apple Pie Jam Recipe

Publisher Photo
Although I've been canning for years, I've never found a good apple jam recipe, so I created this one. My husband of 41 years and I love this jam so much because it tastes just like apple pie…without the crust! —Audrey Godell, Stanton, Michigan

"I am on the east coast so our favorite apple is the Macintosh, do you think it would work with those?"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 12, 2014

"I made this for the first time and tried a bit of the left over that didn't fit in the jar; I thought it was too spicy. But after letting it sit over night and having it on toast the next morning it was very good....a keeper. I was wondering though if you could use apple pie spice in place of the cinnamon and nutmeg....anyone know?"
