An autumn favourite, make your very own apple jam recipes for when local apples are at their best. Apple jam is heavenly and easy to make!
Apples are cooked down slowly with sugar and cinnamon until the mixture thickens and darkens down and starts to look like butter or peanut butter; hence the name! You can spread it on toast, use it in apple cakes or glaze a ham with it. A slow cooker is ideal for making apple butter. This is enough to make 4 jars of apple butter.

This is an old family recipe for apple and apricot jam, tried and tested over and over again with children, and grand-children. We like to gather our apricots at the end of the apricot season so that apple season is already underway meaning that we get the freshest ingredients possible to make this wonderful jam. Look for apricots from May through September and apples throughout the autumn.
