Caramel Apple Jam

Caramel Apple Jam

"I created this recipe one year when I had excess apples. The brown sugar gives the jam a wonderful caramel taste. I'm a retired master baker and cook who enjoys preparing Southern dishes for my wife of 48 years, two sons and five grandchildren."

I'd like to hear from the author... I found this jam to be very thick. Are you sure only 1/2 cup water is needed? Otherwise, very good flavor
