All of the warmth & flavor of Fall wrapped up in one little jar. Grace Filled Farm’s favorite fall jam recipe!
▢ 1 ½ lbs apples, peeled and chopped
▢ 1 ½ lbs pears, peeled and chopped
▢ 2 ¼ cups organic cane sugar
▢ 1 lemon, juiced
▢ ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
▢ ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
▢ ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
▢ ¼ teaspoon ground Allspice (or just as much as you want 😉)
▢ ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
▢ pinch of sea salt
Heat large saucepan over medium-low heat and add apples, pears, sugar, lemon juice, vanilla extract and spices. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Increase saucepan to medium-high to bring mixture to a boil. Continue to boil for 30 minutes or until thickened. If you have a candy thermometer, just boil until the temperature reaches 220°F.
Use a potato masher to mash some of the fruit. Remove from heat and add pinch of salt. Transfer the apple and pear jam to a jar and let cool at room temperature. Store in fridge and use within 1 month.
If you want to keep for longer remove from the stove and immediately ladle into sterilized jars. Place lids on jars and screw on. Place in boiling water with at least 1 inch covering the jars for 10 minutes to seal the jars. Remove and let sit at room temperature for 1 day. Store in cool dark place. Once opened, you need to store in fridge and use within 1 month.
