Apple Jam | How To Make Apple Jam - Ball® Fresh Preserving is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jam or ice cream topping! This is an excellent jam. So easy to prepare. I measured out all the ingredients first, used my apple machine which peeled, cored and thinly sliced the Granny Smiths, put everything in my cookpot, added ingredients listed, then processed.. all while watching Sunday football!! This is the 2nd time I've made this jam. I gave away the first 5 jars and kept 1 for me, which we used as a topping for organic vanilla ice cream. Tastes just like apple pie filling with ice cream. I like the added raisins for texture. I bought the Ball Preserving book, and have loved all the recipes included. I can't seem to find this recipe in the book though. Thanks Ball. I will make this again and again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from QUINCE AS OTHER SUBSTITUTE ELIMINATE RAISIN AND CINNAMON AND USE QUINCE INSTEAD OF APPLE AND YOU WILL NOT NEED PECTIN. BOIL AND SIMMER IT FOR ONE HOUR AND CONTINUE AS FOR APPLES.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Apple pie in a jar! Easy to make and pretty in jar. I like the low sugar and chunky apples. I used a good cider, Blushing Gold apples and left out the lemon zest. Definitely will make this again and no changes to recipe necessary - simply delicious!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great taste, Simple Recipe! This was an incredibly easy jam to make and very tasty! Just a couple of notes, dice the apples into ¼" pieces and use a high quality cinnamon. Six half pints is a pretty small batch so next time I will double it.
