This 30-minute Apple Jam is too good to wait any longer, so I am popping out on Saturday night that too at dinner time. This home made Apple Jam is thick and velvety, sort of like store bought fruit jam but without refined sugar. I totally love the fact that Jam is SUGAR-FREE. It’s sweetened with natural, organic sweetener that is DATES. Soo awesome right??
If you are like me, you can anticipate two-fold benefits out of this close to glossy looking apple jam.#1 If you stock a jar full of apple jam ready in the refrigerator, it can last for several days. It can be spread over dosa or chapati, roll and pack in to tiffin box. That’s a WIN. #2 No hassle of making a separate side dish like coconut chutney while you are busy in morning house hold chores. It’s a double WIN 🙂 .
My little son who always finds spicy-ness eating regular chutney with dosa, has become a solid fan of this Jam now. He some times ends up eating JAM as snack in between meals. I feel so much guilt free, proud to give the jam at any time of the day as it is purely home made without loads of sugar.
Only apples, dates plus cinnamon powder makes an awesome, flavorful and thick jam. Peeled, pitted apples are shredded finely and then pressure cooked for 3 whistles. Alternatively you can cook directly on stove top which may take bit more time though. Then you need to combine the shredded, cooked apple with dates paste and continue cooking so that the apple absorbs all sweetness. And then? Everything gets together and get sprinkled with cinnamon powder. Apple jam with the wonderful aroma of a spice cinnamon can make your kids breakfast (yours too) as ultimate one.
