Apple Crumble Jam

Apple Crumble Jam
Christopher Mohs

As you know may know, you can currently get a free download of my book “For the Love of Cookies”.  One of the recipes is for my Apple Crumble Molasses Cookies, and to make these cookies extra special I wanted an Apple Jam that had a truly unique flavor.

This is the jam that I whipped up for that recipe and I just had to share it with you. It was quick, easy, and I’m sure you’ll agree – it’s just simply too divine not to have on your morning toast, pancakes, waffles – oh why limit this one, you’ll put it on anything and everything you can think of for your morning breakfast.


2 Granny Smith Apples, peeled and cubed (1/4 -1/2 inch cubes)
1/2 cup Water
1 tsp Butter
2 cups Granulated Sugar
1/2 cups Dark Brown Sugar
2 tsp Crumble Spice Artisan Blend
1 pkg Peach Flavored Sugar Free Gelatin Mix


In a medium saucepan add water and apples. Cover and cook slowly at medium heat until the apples become tender.  Then add sugars and butter and bring to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly for about 1 minute.  Stir in the peach gelatin mix completely and then remove from heat to stir in the Crumble Spice (substitute cinnamon).

Ladle jam into small jars leaving at least a 1/4 inch of headspace, wipe the rims and adjust lids.  If you want this to keep longer than a week or two you will need to process for 10 minutes in a boiling-water canner.

NOTE:  The processing time listed is for altitudes of 1,000 feet or less. Add 1 minute to the processing time for each 1,000 feet of additional altitude.
