This is one my family’s favorite jams! Unfortunately it is one of the first ones to disappear, so I really need to make some more! You will love this recipe and it is especially good served on a buttered and toasted slice of my Sweet Sourdough Bread! And since it is apple canning season again, I thought I would share my original recipe….
Apple Spice Marmalade
- 3 (2-inch) cinnamon sticks
- 1/2 tsp cloves
- 1/2 fresh orange, unpeeled, quartered, seeds removed, thinly sliced
- 6 medium apples, peeled, cored, and finely chopped (6 cups)
- 2 cups water
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 5 cups sugar
In an 8- to 10-quart kettle, combine spices, orange slices, apples, water and orange juice. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until apples are tender, about 10 minutes.
Add sugar. Boil for 15 minutes, until the mixture is thick and clear, or until it sheets when poured from a metal spoon. Remove from heat and skim off foam. Pour at once into hot, sterile jars. Wipe jar rims clean and seal. Makes 3 pints. YUM!
