Apple Jam

It's a Monday again...the weekend gets over so soon rt..Wishing all my friends a great week ahead !!

This is the first time I am trying out a jam. There were some leftover apples and I thought a jam would be the best thing to prepare out of them. The Apple jam turned out very good. The home made jam sure tastes great and now I know what I should do with leftover fruits at home. Once the jam was ready, we couldn't wait to taste it with bread. My son wanted only the jam and he was going on asking for more :)

Check out other Apple recipes: Apple Payasam , Apple Cookies, Apple Dates Milkshake .


What you need?

3 Apples
1/2 cup Sugar
1/4 tsp ground Cinnamon 
2 tbsp Lemon juice

How to prepare?

Wash the apples, peel them and chop into small cubes. Add these apples to a pan and about 1/2 cup water, cover and cook until the apples are soft. Once cooked and soft, keep aside and let these cool. Blend the apples with sugar in a blender so as to get a smooth paste.

Now add the apple paste, cinnamon and lemon juice to the pan. Mix well. Cook it stirring constantly until you get a thick mixture. Once cooled, refrigerate it in an airtight container.



Notes:
*Increase sugar if you need more sweetness.
*Add more cinnamon if you like a strong flavour.
