Description: A commonly loved fruit used to make a jam which you can eat every day.
Water 1 cup
Sugar -600 grams (4 cup)
Ilaichi (cardamom) powder ÂĽ tsp.
Lemon juice 1 tbsp.
Apple essence or any few drops (optional)
Red food color few drops (optional)
Wash the apples, dry them or wipe with a cloth and peel them. Remove the seeds of the apples and cut the flesh into small pieces.
Put the apple pieces in a utensil with a thick base, pour water then cover and boil. Once it comes to boil, boil for another 10 minutes till the apple pieces turn soft.
After apples turn soft mash them properly with a spoon or Potato masher. Put sugar in the mashed apples and stir well to let the sugar blend in. Allow jam to cook, Keep stirring to prevent jam from sticking to the pan’s base(to check if the jam is cooked, pour a little bit of jam on a plate, it has to fall together, water should not fall separately). Turn off the gas. Add lemon juice, color, essence (if using) and ilaichi powder mix well. Let it get cool down.
Fill cold Apple Jam in a sterilized glass jar or bottle and store in fridge.
Tip: Prepare the jar while waiting for apples to cool down. Put clean jar (without lid) into the microwave for about 3-5 mins to sterilize.
