Apple Cinnamon Preserve

Apple Cinnamon Preserve

This is an old fashioned apple preserve which works well on toast or pancakes or in pies.

Things you will need:

(yields 500 grams worth)

  • Apples- 3 large (peeled, core removed and cut into small pieces)
  • Cinnamon- 2 inch stick powdered or 1.5 teaspoon
  • Sugar- 1.5 cups
  • Juice of 1 lime

How to go about it:

  1. In a dry, large, deep and heavy bottomed pot, place the cut apples and add the sugar. Mix well. Let it sit for 10 minutes.
  2. Place the pot on a medium heat and keep stirring while you wait for the sugar to melt.
  3. Once the sugar begins to melt, add the cinnamon and lime juice and keep mixing it all well. The apples will now begin to release water.
  4. Keep stirring the contents for another 25-30 minutes or until the apple pieces soften up. Break down the larger pieces with a potato masher or the back of a wooden spoon.
  5. Aim to get the preserve to a nice jam like consistency with little chunks of well cooked apples here and there. Don’t allow it to get completely smooth.
  6. Cool down completely before storing away in dry, glass jars. Keeps well for 3 weeks in the fridge.
