Ingredients

3
cups Gala apples (about 3), peeled and diced
2
cups Granny Smith apples (about 2), peeled and diced
1
cup sugar
1/2
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2
teaspoon ground ginger
1
box (1.75 oz) fruit pectin
Clean canning jars and lids

Directions

  • 1 In large bowl, mix apples, sugar, cinnamon and ginger; toss to coat. Set aside at room temperature 30 minutes.
  • 2 Place the apples and any collected juices into large pot, and mix in pectin. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium, and cook jam until thickened and apples have softened, about 10 minutes.
  • 3 Use ladle to transfer jam into clean jars, leaving about 1/2 inch space at top of each jar. Place lids on top, and allow to cool to room temperature (at least 2 hours), before freezing. Defrost jam in refrigerator before using.

Expert Tips

Using two types of apples, Gala and Granny Smith, makes for a very apple-y, sweet-tart jam.

Instead of traditional canning method of processing the filled jars in a boiling water bath, the freezer preserves this jam. You can use traditional or freezer-specific pectin for this recipe.

Canning jars in a variety of sizes and styles make this jam a super-cute, homemade gift.
