Apple Ginger Jam

Submitted by JamJar aka Chutney Queen 01 September 2009

This is from an old M & S "Home Preserves" recipe book. I haven't made it yet but thought it could be useful for those with an apple glut! Recipe says it makes about 7 lbs.



4 lb. cooking apples, peeled & sliced 1.5 pts. water 2 lemons, grated rind & juice 1 oz. root ginger, peeled 3.5 lbs. sugar 4 oz. preserved ginger, finely chopped


NB: I am not sure whether recipe refers to 4lbs. weight apples before preparation, or after. I think it's before. Put sliced apples, lemon rind & juice, water & root ginger into preserving pan. Root ginger can either be bruised & tied in muslin, or v.finely chopped & added. Simmer gently until apples are soft. Add the preserved ginger & the sugar & heat gently, stirring, until sugar is dissolved. Bring to boil and fast boil until setting point is reached. Remove scum, cool slightly before pouring into jars.
