Apple Jam

This week apples were on sale for the price of 0.99 cent per kilo, so  I decided to make apple jam. My Granny who is a very experienced homekeeper, always used to make it when I was a little girl, but I have never done it until recently. I simply got a craving for the thing, so I bought 2 kilos of apples and went to work:

The recipe on the package of jelly sugar calls for 1:1 proportion, but as apples are naturally rich in pectin, I used 1 kg of sugar for 2 kg of apples. I did have to cook it longer though, 12 minutes instead of 5:

Here is the end result:

 It tastes great, too, though rather sweet. I know because it's the second time I have made it this winter. Hopefully this summer will be better than the last one, so I'll be able to make some bramble jam, too!
