The recipe is a Strawberry Honey Jam that used grated apple as the pectin that was needed for it to gel. This all natural jam I thought wouldn't be sweet enough when I started but as you will see as the jam continued to cook down the color changed to a deep luscious red and though the consistency is not super firm like most jams made with powdered or liquid pectin the texture and taste is undeniably amazing.
This recipe is a small batch recipe but it can be Doubled and Tripled because it has NO pectin!
