Apple-Maple Jam

Submitted by: Suzanne McMinn on June 18, 2011

A deliciously spicy jam with maple flavor and chunks of apple–tastes like apple pie! (From the BBB.)

Servings: 8 half-pints   Prep Time: about an hour or so   Cook Time: 10 minutes BWB  


3 quarts chopped, peeled, cored apples (about 6 pounds)

6 cups sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon allspice

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon cloves

1 cup maple syrup


Combine all ingredients in a large pot. Bring slowly to a boil. Cook rapidly to gelling point. As mixture thickens, stir frequently to prevent sticking. Remove from heat. Ladle hot jam in hot jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. BWB 10 minutes.

Note: If you want to add 1 package powdered pectin, combine the apples and the pectin in the pot first; bring to a boil. Then add the remaining ingredients and continue with the recipe.
