Recipe: Apple Ginger Jam
I haven't made this yet, but found the recipe in a very old-timey preservation book. Let me know how you like it!
about 4 pounds of apples
1 cup water
2 teaspoons powdered ginger
1 lemon (juice and grated rind)
Peel and core the apples. Boil in the water until the apples are soft. Strain the apple(sauce) through a coarse sieve and weigh it. Add 3/4 cup of sugar for each pound of applesauce. Bring to a boil again and skim. Stir in the ginger, lemon juice, and lemon rind. Boil again but this time WITHOUT STIRRING until the right consistency is obtained. Pour into sterilized jars and cover tightly.
Note: At this point, I assume you can seal the jar with wax, etc.
