  • 6 cups diced peeled apples (tart and sweet in combo)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 package powdered fruit pectin
  • 2 cups cane sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg


  • In a dutch oven combine the apples and water. Cook and stir over low heat until apples are soft. Stir in pectin and bring to a rolling boil, stirring constantly.¬†Mash or use an immersion blender if there are bits of apple that have not cooked down into the jam.
  • In a bowl while you are waiting for the rolling boil, measure the sugars and spices. Add the measured ingredients (sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg) and return to a rolling boil. Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • Remove from the heat and ladle hot jam into hot sterilized jars, leaving 1/4-in. headspace. Using your bubble remover or plastic spatula remove any air bubbles and refill to proper headspace.
  • Using a damp papertowel wipe the rims of the glass and then add the hot lids/rings. Tighten the lid "finger tight".
  • Add to water bath pot with a rack on the bottom and process for 10 minutes in a water bath at a full boil.
  • Makes 5 half pints.
