EXPERT TIPS

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.
