"This recipe was inspired by others I had found online. They were very good but seemed to taste more like apple pie, so I changed it to be more like caramel. Hope you enjoy it." — JUST DUCKY

half-pint canning jars with lids and rings
Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored, and chopped
1 1/2 (1.75 ounce) packages
powdered fruit pectin
clear butter flavoring (such as Wilton®)
Though it didn't really taste like caramel, this was a great alternative to the run of the mill apple jam. It has really been a hit in our house & has been used quite a bit on buttered English muffins. Thank you for this great recipe! :-)
I was looking for something a little different to do with apples, and came across this recipe. I made it yesterday & it was delicious!! My DH even put some over ice-cream. While I was processing them, I realized the instructions said to use 1 1/2 packages of 1.75 ounce pectin. I only saw the 1.75 ounces so I only used 1 package. However, the jam was still acceptable. A little soft, but that's the way we like our jam. I also should have chopped the apples smaller, so I used a stick blender briefly while it was cooking.
This is really rich and tasty!
Could you please also post the original "apple pie" tasting jam recipe too? I have saved it as my favorite and now when going to make it again the recipe is different! :-) It was a great recipe too, although it did not taste like caramel.
Delicious with the apples we picked yesterday (Jonagold). It was quite sweet, I guess jam always is, so I added a bit of spice (cinnamon, cloves, and ginger) to add some depth. Also: I didn't have any butter flavoring, so I just stuck with the tablespoon of butter as above. I made 2 batches and only used one box of pectin in the second batch (the recipe calls for 1.5 boxes) -- turns out, one box works just fine.
This turned out great! I used half granny smith and half gala apples since my family doesn't love things that are really tart and it was super tasty!
Absolutely wonderful! I had purchased some blemished/second picking apples to make applesauce and found I had many left over. I wanted to try something different and this sounded interesting. I'm so glad i tried it! I had read some of the other reviews and was concerned about the sweetness of the end product-especially since I didn't have tart Granny Smith apples. I went ahead and used the required amount of sugar but I added 1 TB of lemon juice to balance it out. It's fantastic!
