"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."

Original recipe makes 8 half-pint jars Change Servings

Directions

  1. Sterilize the jars and lids in boiling water for at least 5 minutes.
  2. Bring apples, water, and butter to a boil in a large pot. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until apples are softened, about 8 minutes. Mix in brown sugar, white sugar, pectin powder, and butter flavoring. Bring to a full rolling boil, stirring often. Cook at a boil for 2 minutes without stirring.
  3. Pack the apple jam into the hot, sterilized jars, filling the jars to within 1/4 inch of the top. Run a knife or a thin spatula around the insides of the jars after they have been filled to remove any air bubbles. Wipe the rims of the jars with a moist paper towel to remove any food residue. Top with lids and screw on rings.
  4. Place a rack in the bottom of a large stockpot and fill halfway with water. Bring to a boil and lower jars into the boiling water using a holder. Leave a 2-inch space between the jars. Pour in more boiling water if necessary to bring the water level to at least 1 inch above the tops of the jars. Bring the water to a rolling boil, cover the pot, and process for 15 minutes.
  5. Remove the jars from the stockpot and place onto a cloth-covered or wood surface, several inches apart, until cool. Once cool, press the top of each lid with a finger, ensuring that the seal is tight (lid does not move up or down at all). Let stand 8 hours to overnight before use. Store in a cool, dark area; refrigerate opened jars.

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.

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.

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.

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!

My mother in law and I are making jam for Christmas gifts and we LOVE this recipe. We took the cooked apples (before adding sugar and pectin) and put in food processor to make it more like an apple butter and we can't keep my father in law out of our gifts! I highly recommend this recipe.
