Apple Pie Jam Recipe

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

Hi Ceege, we have verified with a number of experts that the processing time would be the same time listed in the recipe.

susieQTee, yes, you would store it in the refrigerator for 4 to 6 weeks.

I'm extremely new to canning. I have a question that I think the info for should've been included in the instructions for us canning newbies: can anyone tell me once a jar is opened does it get stored in the fridge, and, for how long will it last once opened? Thanks ahead of time to all my other ToH reviewers :)

Question to the editor. Is it okay to make this jam in pint canning jars? If so, does the processing time need to be increased? I am fairly new at canning and don't want to do anything that would ruin the jam or waste the apples. I only have pint size jars and really do not want to purchase a lot of the 1/2 pint size. Thanks for your help.

This is wonderful. After it had cooled down, tried the leftover in the dish, thot it was way too spicy..ohoh. The next morning DH said it was delish. He'd had it on ice cream, and on his toast this am. So i had it on toast..yes a keeper. Not overly spicy at all, and i even used the mace. I'll be making it again. Just won't be eating it by the spoonful!
