Our apple trees didn’t do squat for us this year. Bummer. Last year we were loaded so I guess I can’t complain too much. I made my own cider last year, so this year I just didn’t feel quite right about buying something I could make, until I saw the price. Cheap! Apple cider is still in abundance at stores too, so if you have a hankering to make this apple cider jam, then go for it!
This would make a great gift too! Oh, and I forgot to mention that it is quite yummy! Cuz you know, apple cider and brown sugar…..need I say more?
5 cups Apple Cider
3 cinnamon sticks
1 tsp. whole cloves
1 tsp. whole all-spice
1 strip lemon zest
1/2 tsp. butter
1 pkg. Sure-jell
2 cups sugar
2 cups brown sugar
Put the spices in a spice bag or jelly cloth.
Bring the apple cider, butter, Sure-jell and spice bag to full rolling boil. Add the sugars and return to a rolling boil. Boil for one minute, stirring constantly. Put in half pint jars with 1/2 inch headspace.
Process for ten minutes via water bath.
