Apple Pie Pecan Jam Recipe

My friend, Linda, loves apple jelly. In fact, it’s the only type of jelly that she will eat. I can sympathize. Apples are one of my go-to fruits and a standard item on my grocery list. With fall just around the corner we thought it would be the perfect time to try our hand at some apple jelly. Well, we actually upgraded the basic jelly recipe and opted for apple pie pecan jam. We found a recipe that will not disappoint.

We sampled our batch on some hot biscuits fresh out of the oven. May I suggest that you do the same? And be sure to share it with a friend or two. After all, this apple pie pecan jam has a way of strengthening ties between friends. Plus the mixture of apples, cinnamon and pecans will have you jumping for joy that fall is nearly here!

Stir in sugar and brown sugar. Bring to a boil stirring constantly. Boil for 4 minutes. Stir in pectin and remove from heat. Pour the apple pie pecan jam mixture into prepared jars. This recipe makes about 12 jars if you are using 12 oz. jars.

Sweet Memories of Baking

Give September a warm welcome by trying this recipe and when you do let me know your thoughts.

    Does it matter what kind do apples you use?

      Good question! I prefer Granny Smith apples, but it’s more a matter of preference than necessity. I hope you enjoy!
