Apple Pie Jam Recipe

Apple Pie Jam

Erich Ferdinand

This apple pie jam recipe makes the characteristically unfussy, yet gourmet sweet typical of food in Quebec. Spread it onto a slice of toasted baguette for a cozy breakfast or serve it with a selection of sharp cheeses and crackers for an informal cheese course.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 9 half-pints


  • 9 large sweet-tart apples, cored, peeled and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1.75-ounce package lower sugar pectin
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 1/2 teaspoon butter


How to make apple pie jam:

In a large saucepan, toss the prepared apples with the lemon juice. Sprinkle the apples with the brown sugar, pectin, spices and lemon zest. Add the butter to the pan and pour the apple cider over the spiced apples. Heat the mixture over medium-high heat until it comes to a full, rolling boil.

Cook the apple pie jam, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes. Remove the jam from the heat and spoon it into sterile jars. Store the jam in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.

This apple pie jam recipe makes approximately 9 half-pints.

Decent recipe, but makes less than 4 half pints!, Member DrSKT

I do a lot of home canning, and have won numerous awards for it. When I looked at this recipe, I thought about cutting it in half, as I didn't really want 9 half pints. Then I looked at the ingredient amounts and decided the writer was probably off - my guess was that it would make 6 or 7 half pints, rather than the 9 claimed. Wrong! It made LESS THAN FOUR half pints. Either the author uses apples that are more than twice the size I can buy, or this is an error. Otherwise, not a bad recipe. If you want sweeter jam, add half a cup of splenda to the brown sugar.
