Apple Jam

Quantities

Qty Description Qty Description
4 lb cooking apples 2 lemons
3 lb granulated sugar 1 pint water
piece of root ginger

Method

Peel and core the apples. This should give approximately 2 lb.

Simmer the sugar and water for about 20 minutes to make a thick syrup.

Meanwhile chop the apples and when the syrup is ready add them to the syrup with the piece of root ginger tied in muslin and the grated rind of the two lemons and the juice of one.

Let it simmer gently until the apples look clear and golden, about 30 minutes.

The result is very similar to marrow jam as the flavour comes from the lemon and ginger. It too does not keep particularly well tending to get rather crystallised.
