    Pink Apple Jam Recipe

    Pink Apple Jam Recipe

    I have been busy over the past week processing the apples from my Jonathan apple tree. I have made many quarts of applesauce. My husband bought me a peeler and corer, which made preparing apples for applesauce so much easier. However, I hated wasting all the peels. I thus tried my hand at pink apple jelly. The jelly turned out so tasty that I decided to attempt some pink apple jam as well. My kids absolutely loved the jam, and I loved that I could use the peels and cores from my applesauce too.

    Ingredients

    • 1 dozen apple peels and cores
    • 12 cups of water
    • 6 apples
    • 1.75 ounces of pectin
    • 6 cups of sugar

    Directions

    1. Cover the apple peels and cores with the water.
    2. Boil the apple pieces for 30 minutes.
    3. Strain the water from the cooked apple pieces
    4. Discard the cooked apple pieces.
    5. Transfer 6 cups of the apple water to a large pot.
    6. Core, peel, and dice the remaining 6 apples.
    7. Add the diced apples to the apple water.
    8. Whisk in the pectin.
    9. Boil until the apples are soft.
    10. Whisk in the sugar.
    11. Use a blender to mash up the boiled apples.
    12. Boil for 5 minutes or until jam begins to set.
    13. Transfer the apple jam to prepared pint jars, leaving, 1/4-inch headspace.
    14. Boil the jars in a water-bath for 5 minutes.
