Serves: 3 bottles
 
Ingredients
  • 1kg red apples (I used royal gala apples)
  • 2.5 tbsp lemon juice
  • lemon zest from 1 large lemon
  • 225g apple juice - no sugar added (1 cup) - I used Fruit Tree brand apple juice
  • 200g sugar (1 cup) or to taste
  • 1tsp cinnamon powder
Instructions
  1. Peel and core apples and cut into cubes (not too small). Place apple cubes into a large pot and all the remaining ingredients into it.
  2. Cook apple mixture for about 10 minutes over high heat. Then turn to medium heat and continue to boil for another 20 minutes until apples are translucent, soft and liquid reduced to half and thick. Stirring occasionally to prevent burning.
  3. Lastly simmer at low heat for about 5-10 minutes and use a large spoon or wooden spoon to mash the apples. You can leave some chunky apples behind or mash them completely.
  4. Ladle hot jam into sterilized bottles and tightly sealed by inverting them to cool. Then place them in the refrigerator for at least 2 days before consuming。It can be kept for at least 2 weeks refrigerated.
Notes
use less lemon juice and more sugar for green apples as they are generally more sour than red apples.
