Apple jam – A homemade treat to welcome the fall. The cooler days of early fall is the perfect time to gather apples from your garden, or buy your favorite apples from the store! Apples in one of my favorites to preserve for the winter.
I decided to add some ground ginger, ground cinnamon and vanilla essence – in my opinion heavenly good! Feel free to modify the recipe. Add sugar as you like.
You can spread it on toast, or make it your desert topped with whipped cream or vanilla sauce! Put it on your cereal or overnight oats (I love that!) or serve it alongside cheese. The choice is yours.
Apple jam with ginger, cinnamon and vanilla
Welcome the fall with homemade apple jam, with a hint of ginger, cinnamon and vanilla.
Heavenly good - and very easy to prepare!
- Ground or fresh grated ginger
- Ground cinnamon
- Vanilla essence
- Wash, peel, core and cut the apples into small pieces.
- Add a little water (just covering the bottom) in a wide, shallow pan and add the apples
- Cook on medium heat for 15 minutes (until the apples are soft). (Add the flavors and spices to your liking after about 10 minutes.)
- Take the masher or handheld mixer to crush the apples to your preferred consistence.
- Store inn clean jars. Can be stored in the freezer.
The apple jam can be eaten both cold and warm, as filling for pies, as a dessert, pastries, alongside cheese or pancakes, or cereal topping. Enjoy!
Tips: Next time I plan to play around with a few flavors when making my apple jam:
- Lemon zest
- All spice
Courses condiments, jelly, jam
With apples and spices – no sugar added – this recipe is pretty healthy!
“An apple a day keeps the doctors away” is an old proverb that many of us are familiar with. But what makes the fruit so special? Apples are extremely rich in important antioxidants (vitamin B and C!) and dietary fiber – a healthy fruit to include in your diet. Ginger, as you probably now, is a very powerful spice – one of the healthiest (and most delicious) on the planet! Ginger is loaded with nutrients and bioactive compounds. Ginger as medicine: I especially love ginger for nausea, and for getting the blood circulation up to speed.
